Wayne Palsson has been singing chanteys and maritime songs up and down the West Coast for almost a decade, focusing on songs with rich tones reflecting the fishing and maritime trades. His own nautical experience on the high seas and local waters helps to anchor his interpretations of traditional chanteys, new and local sea songs, and even a few overlooked classics by Gilbert and Sullivan. Wayne is the host of Northwest Seaport’s Chantey Sing Series.
Wayne will lead the May Sing Shanties Song Circle at the Northwest Maritime Center (upstairs, above the Chandlery and across from the offices) on the second Wednesday in May - May 14th - from 6:00 to 8:00p.m. The best maritime venue on the Peninsula, and one of the finest shanty singers in the Pacific Northwest - not to be missed!
FREE, family-friendly community gathering, and songbooks available to sing along... coffee, tea and cookies provided.
