May Chantey Sing

Matthew MoellerMatthew Moeller will lead the May Chantey Sing!

Matthew Moeller writes the best songs about Washington maritime lore ranging from salt horse, to the legendary ferry The Flyer, and to the lowly geoduc. Matthew is a long-time Puget Sound chanteyman who has hosted the Northwest Seaport Chantey Sing, appeared in a number of maritime bands, and has lived the nautical life aboard a vintage cruiser. Captain Matt returns to Northwest Seaport as the May song leader and will keep the music lively!

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.

 

June Chantey Sing

Whateverly BrosThe Whateverly Brothers lead Northwest Seaport’s June Chantey Sing. The Whateverly Brothers is a madcap trio of Dan Roberts, Chris Glanister, and Rob Kneisler. The Bros turn sea songs on edge with their well-crafted harmonies of traditional chanteys and contemporary arrangements.  You never know what kind of rollicking ruckus these guys will dredge up! And they will surely crank up the fun level to “high” at the June Chantey Sing.
