DHBD-Shanty Sing Reminder!
- Shanty Sing Reminder!
Since I'll be out of town serving on the Sullivan Jan 5-19th, I wanted
to send one more reminder before I leave:
Shanty Sing Out Monday January 12th
Dean Calin of Bounding Main and Pier Wisconsin/ Tallship Denis
Sullivan host the next in a series of Sea Shanty Sing-Outs on Monday
January 12th at 7:00 PM.
Special guests Tom and Chris Kastle of Chicago will be leading many of
the evenings songs. The general public is welcome. There is no charge
to participate. The Sea Shanty Sing-Out will be held at PIER WISCONSIN
(formerly The Wisconsin Lake Schooner Center) 500 N Harbor Drive (East
Michigan Ave at the Lake). Call 414-276-7700 or visit
www.pierwisconsin.org for information.
Tom and Chris Kastle are singers, sailors, songwriters and storytellers
who have performed the music of the Great Lakes, and the seas beyond, as
far away as Poland and New Zealand. They have both served as crew and
instructors aboard tall ships; Tom is a relief captain on the schooners
Inland Seas and Windy as well as Mercury Cruises on the Chicago River.
The Kastles teach a sea music class at the Old Town School of Folk Music
Chicago and have several sea music recordings (see www.kastles.net).
They are also the directors of the Chicago Maritime Festival, to be held
on February 28, 2004 (see www.chicagomaritimefestival.org).
Dean Calin is the founder of Bounding Main, a vocal group dedicated to
keeping alive the spirit of Sea Shanties and Nautical Ballads. Based in
the Chicago-Milwaukee corridor, this lively group of singers appear at
nautical and Renaissance venues, including the Bristol Faire in Kenosha,
WI and aboard the tall ship The Denis Sullivan. For information see:
