Sing Shanties Song Circle Calendar

2017 - Sing Shanties Song Circle Schedule

Check our schedule and locations below for our 2017 FREE, family-friendly Sing Shanties Song Circle in Port Townsend, Washington:

Thank you to the Northwest Maritime Center for hosting our Song Circles. The location of our Song Circle is in the upstairs Maritime Meeting Room - West, which is directly across from the NWMC offices, library and restrooms. (Unless otherwise stated.)

Since song circle times bridge the typical "dinner hour", you are encouraged to bring a brown bag snack, take-out... something to satisfy your dinnertime appetite. As always tea will be supplied by Pippa's Real Teas.
