with Dan Roberts
Dan Roberts leads Northwest Seaport’s February Chantey Sing. Dan started the Seattle Chantey Sings in 2000 and continues to perform solo and with The Whateverly Brothers. He is a consummate folk and vocal musician. Dan will lead the session and keep the music rolling along. It being close to Valentine’s Day, songs of maritime romance might be featured.
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.
