Dano Quinn to lead our April 13th Sing Shanty session!!

Our song leader this month is the award-winning Dano Quinn, who tells the greatest salty tales this side of the Oriquoromomo* Divide. And all are his very own work. Don't miss it...Dano is quite the character...you'll never hear stories like this anywhere else.
And - he tells me his CD's are all million sellers. He has a million of them in his cellar. (Hah! The old ones are the best.)

(*P.S. I made up that name...I'm a little mischievous.)
