Captivating performances in a free mini-workshop that explores the rich musical tradition of sea chanteys—songs used by old-time sailors to facilitate their work at sea. These catchy rhythms served as a unifying force during various tasks like hauling on lines and engaging in labor that required synchronized effort and heave-hos. Repeated at 1pm and 3pm.
