Join us March 1 for our next Sea Shanty Gathering!

What a fun night this is gonna be! Our March Song Circle Leader is TUGBOAT BROMBERG! Please share this flyer with family and friends! Come early to order food and beverage. Though some may have to slip out to catch a ferry, per many requests, we've extended the evening an additional half hour, ending at 8:30 p.m. 

If you are a musician, we invite you to bring your musical instruments and play along. If your are a local or regional shanty singer or shanty group who would like to lead one of our song circles, be sure to let us know! Read more about leading one of our song circles here.

Note this on your calendar: The Shifty Sailors will lead our April Song Circle and Matthew Moeller of the Whateverly Brothers will lead our Song Circle in July.

February 2 Sea Shanty Song Circle and Sing-Along

Another fun night of singing maritime songs at the Northwest Maritime Center Cafe! Eighty men, women and children came out on a cold winter's night to warm themselves singing songs, sitting about the Song Circle lead by local musician Mike James.
