Spanaway Bay, song leaders

Taste the salty, bluesy flavor of Spanaway Bay! From the rocky shores south of the Puget Sound and directly above the center of the earth, sail the rollicking folk duo Spanaway Bay. Kent and Carol also perform as members of Broadside & the Handsome Cabin Boys. They will reel you in with an eclectic mélange of maritime, Celtic, and traditional songs as you join in on the choruses.

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.
