Dan Roberts, song leader

Dan Roberts leads Northwest Seaport’s February Chantey Sing. Dan performs solo and with The Whateverly Brothers. Dan started the Seattle Chantey Sings in 2000 and he will lead the session and keep the music rolling along. It being close to Valentine’s Day, songs of maritime romance might be featured. Dan is a consummate folk and vocal musician–visit him and his pals at http://thewhateverlybrothers.com

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.
