Sing a Sea Shanty

May 26 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

MAY 26 IS GOING TO BE A SLOSH!
We are so excited to announce that May’s Sing a Sea Shanty night with Bytown Sea Shanty Collective is going to one to remember, as we bring legendary shantyman Tom Lewis and Toronto’s Pressgang Mutiny to our home port of Beyond the Pale.
Get your reservations in and get there to early avoid disappointment because it will fill up!! We will be passing the hat to support these brilliant touring artists, so bring some doubloons, pay-what-you-can!
The special sea shanty starts around 7:30pm!
About the artists:
TOM LEWIS
Needing little introduction, Tom is renowned for composing ‘The Last Shanty’ (A Sailor Ain’t A Sailor), ”Sailor’s Prayer’ (Send Down A Dove), ‘Legend’ (Marching Inland), plus many other contemporary songs of the sea that have become folk standards, sung by more than 40 groups around the world.
Tom’s repertoire—from traditional shanties to songs fashioned out of his own seafaring background—recruits his audience for a voyage by turns reflective, dramatic and humorous. Born in Northern Ireland, Tom’s Celtic heritage is obvious in his clear, strong voice, evoking quiet sorrow for a fisherman lost to the sea just as honestly as it powers out a shanty “to be heard above the gales.”

PRESSGANG MUTINY
Pressgang Mutiny are Toronto’s Shantymen, dedicated to traveling the globe to discover shanties and works songs and the people who sing them. A quartet of dynamic musicians and tall ship sailors, they have toured extensively across the East Coasts of Canada and the US and performed at festivals in the UK and Europe.
