Next Chantey SingDano Quinn

Friday, March 10
8:00 to 10:00 pm
Center For Wooden Boats
1010 Valley Street,  Seattle

Dano Quinn, song leader

Captain Dano Quinn, as fine an Irishman as you will ever meet, will lead us for the March sing-a-long. Dan is a habitual winner of the Seattle Stories of the Sea Contest and is a regular at Astoria’s FisherPoets Gathering. As a tall ship skipper, charter captain, or cruise ship master, Dan has collected and sung many songs of the sea from all over the world. Being close to St. Patrick’s Day, we will surely include a few maritime Irish songs.

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.
