Hyde Street Pier Sea Chantey Sing Goes ONLINE!
Dates & Times
Type of Event
Starting on Saturday, September 19, 2020 at 12pm, one of the Bay Area’s most beloved musical traditions goes live from – your own home! Long a monthly “landmark” aboard San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park’s historic ships, the multi-generational gathering has been sidelined since early this year by COVID-19. But with help from the San Francisco Maritime Park Association, the Park’s non-profit partner, the sing will go on!
Park Ranger Peter Kasin will be trading his fiddle and folding chair for a microphone and wi-fi to assume the role of chantey V-Empresario: introducing singers and setting up the songs. Singing participants, who have signed up for performing slots in advance, will share their favorite songs, either accompanying themselves on traditional instruments, or a capella.
Visit https://maritime.org/events-home/chantey-sing/ for complete details, including links to an online signup sheet, instructions for lead singers, and some suggested virtual backgrounds (just in case your bunk isn’t completely ship-shape). You’ll need a good internet connection, and should be prepared to have fun!
