The Whateverly Brothers, song leaders
The Whateverly Brothers will lead the Chantey Sing and will usher in the summer with maritime music. The madcap trio of Dan Roberts, Chris Glanister, and Rob Kneisler turn sea songs on edge with their well-crafted harmonies of traditional chanteys and contemporary arrangements. You never know what kind of rollicking ruckus the Bros will dredge up! And they will surely crank up the fun level to “high” at the June Chantey Sing.
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.
