Join us for an hour of shanties and sea songs, and take your turn to lead one from the audience or the front of the room.

Bonus. After the shanties and a short break, head upstairs to listen to or join the “fiddle session,” (included guitars, fiddles, concertinas, etc.) featuring old-time tunes and music from Irish, Scottish, Appalachian, Quebecois (and elsewhere) traditions, led by Doug Sherlock, sometimes shanty singer and always an enthusiastic fiddler.
