Broadside & The Handsome Cabin Boys, song leaders
The all-woman maritime band Broadside and their counterparts the Handsome Cabin Boys lead the July sing-a-long aboard the historic tugboat Arthur Foss at Lake Union Park.
Broadside consists of Trapper Graves, Carol Mesford, and Felicia Dale; The Handsome Cabin Boys are Steve Lalor, Kent Mesford, and William Pint. Each is a fine musician in their own right, but together, they have knock-out energy and harmonies.
Sea Chanteys and other maritime music celebrate our connections to the sea, boats, and those who sail them. They include work songs and foc’sle ditties with great choruses that tie our present day maritime traditions and lore to those of the past. The call-and-response form makes these songs easy to learn and fun to sing for adults and children alike. Come and lead a song of the sea or just join in on the chorus.
Admission is free but donations to benefit maritime preservation are welcome. Fun for folks of all ages! Food and beverages will be available for purchase.
