Wayne Palsson, song leader

Wayne Palsson will lead the December Chantey sing in a song circle format.

Wayne sings chanteys and maritime songs up and down the West Coast, focusing on songs with rich tones reflecting the fishing and maritime trades. His own nautical experience on the high seas and local waters helps to anchor his interpretations of traditional chanteys, new and local sea songs, and even a few overlooked classics by Gilbert and Sullivan.

He performs with the maritime group Strikes A Bell and has led many maritime music events around the Puget Sound.

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.

Hosted by Wayne Palsson.
