“Of Ferry Boats, Taverns and Sea Chanties”

Join Gus Pedersen and the Kingston Sea Chanty Singers for an informative and entertaining look at the meaning and purpose behind the famous working songs and chants that guided sailors as they navigated the waters in the age of sail.

Dean Barnes, a member of the Sea Chanty group and a living history interpreter, will make a special appearance and bring life to the late 18th century in the persona of Jacob Kip who was the Captain of a ferry that ran from Kingston to Rhinecliff and also the proprietor of a local tavern.
