David Coffin
Sun. Jan. 22 - 2:00pm
Family & Sea Shanties

The Great Hall, Town Hall
84 S. Main St. Wolfeboro


“David Coffin is a musician, performer, and music educator of remarkable ability and insight.” Stuart M. Frank, New Bedford Whaling Museum. Sing along on a shanty (work song) as we “hoist” the sails, “haul” on the lines, and stamp around the capstan. A salty lot we are as we imagine ourselves sailing around the horn on a square rigger. And just what is a pressgang, a belaying pin, a fo’c’sle, a baggywrinkle, or a shellback? Learn what it takes to cross the line and double the horn. Hear the songs mariners sang of home as they drifted in the doldrums off South America. Accompanied by his concertina, David will get the whole class, or even the whole school, singing to shake loose the sails.
