860 Terry Ave N, Seattle, WA 98109

with Tugboat Bromberg

The well-known buccaneer scallywag hails from that piratical port of Poulsbo and is best known for his gravely voice, his original songs, and dressing and living the characters of pirate, merchant seaman, and tugboat man. As chantey quartermaster, his job will be to steer the Chantey Sing on course and keep the music flowing.

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.

Hosted by Jean Geiger and Wayne Palsson.
