The Whateverly Brothers will lead the Chantey Sing and will usher in the summer with maritime music. This madcap band features none other than Dan Roberts, Chris Glanister, and Matthew Moeller. “The Bros” are well-versed in chanteys but also change up original and other maritime songs a fun-pitched level. It was Dan Roberts who re-started the Chantey Sings in 2000 and Matthew kept it rolling later on. Chris is also a sound guru supporting many maritime music events. You never know what kind of rollicking ruckus these guys will dredge up — maybe even a song about the world’s largest clam!
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. While you’re there, browse the Pacific Northwest’s largest collection of maritime music CDs for sale. Coffee, tea, and baked goods will also be available for purchase.
