The Whateverly Brothers is a madcap duo of none other than Dan Roberts and Chris Glanister. The Bros turn sea songs on edge with their well-crafted harmonies of traditional chanties as well as their own compositions and arrangements. You never know what kind of rollicking ruckus these guys will dredge up! And they will surely crank up the fun level to “high” at the May Chantey Sing.
The MOHAI museum will be open until 5:00 p.m. and the Compass Café will remain open during the Chantey SIng. Come early and enjoy some Northwest fare and beverages with a backdrop of the Historic Ships Wharf. Some artifacts and wood from the Wawona are integrated into the café furnishings.
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 in the Compass Café.
