Concert at the Sail: The Ship's Company Chanteymen
4:30-6:30 p.m.: Sailwinds Amphitheater, 2 Rose Hill Place, Cambridge, MD 21613
The Ship's Company Chanteymen is set to perform during a FREE waterfront concert event on Sunday, October 28 from 4:30 to 6:30pm. The concert will take place outdoors (weather permitting) on the banks of the Choptank River at the Amphitheater at Sailwinds Park (next to the Dorchester County Visitor Center). Come early for the The Kite Festival at Sailwinds Park, happening the same day in the same location from 12 to 4pm.
For more than a decade, the Ship’s Company Chanteymen have shared sea salts' songs with tens of thousands, all over the East Coast. They portray the musical part of nautical life in the 1700s and 1800s. Many of their songs originally set a pace to keep ship crews rowing in time or doing rhythmic chores such as turning a capstan. Some just filled long hours or lonely nights at sea. Simple and direct, wild and spirited, salty and rough as a North Atlantic gale, they were a reflection of the sailors themselves. With rollicking tunes and sing-along choruses, it’s also fun!
They are part of Ship's History, a living history group dedicated to the preservation of the American maritime heritage.
Be sure to bring your blankets and lawn chairs. Children are welcome. Food will be available for purchase from Two Chicks Catering. You are also free to bring a picnic.
The concert is is part of the "At The Sail" series of events.
Thanks to the Wine Bar in Cambridge, which is the main sponsor for ALL the At the Sail concerts in 2018!
