Michael "Mac" McGann was a folk singer and songwriter, a unique guitarist, barrelhouse blues pianist, harmonica player, graphic artist, wood carver and cartoonist. He was best-known for his live performances in pubs and clubs around London alongside guitarists and singers who would become more famous – including John Martyn, John Renbourn, Ralph McTell and the "King of the Buskers" Don Partridge.
