with Spanaway Bay

From the rocky shores of Spanaway Bay, south of the Puget Sound and directly above the center of the earth, sail the rollicking folk duo Spanaway Bay. Kent and Carol have been engaging audiences throughout the Puget Sound with an eclectic mélange of Maritime, Celtic, English and American folk songs. This lively duo are the favorite chantey singers aboard the 1913 schooner Adventuress. Additionally, they perform as members of Broadside and the Handsome Cabin Boys and The Great Sanger and Didele.

Kent and Carol will reel you in with an eclectic mélange of maritime, celtic, and traditional songs as you join in on the choruses. Taste the salty, bluesy flavor of Spanaway Bay!

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. Folks of all ages are welcome.  Maritime music CDs, coffee, tea, and baked goods will be available for purchase.
