Thar She Blows!E Saturday April 21, 9:30pm to 10:20pm, High School Auditorium Stage [show on grid]
For many years, the arrival of a fully laden whaling ship meant the homes and streets of cities like London, Boston and New York would be brightly lit and the machines that powered the Industrial Revolution would sun smoothly - all thanks to whale oil. But the whalermen also gave us folk art, the great American novel, Moby Dick, and a large collection of fine songs. Come explore with us the whaling trade through the songs they left behind.
Open Shanty SingGB Sunday April 22, 2:00pm to 2:50pm, Middle School Rm. 103/104 [show on grid]
Dedicated to all the shanty singers who have crossed the bar, join us in singing shanties and sea songs in their honor and our enjoyment.
