Hello Sailor!
A Bawdy Song Sing Along

Saturday, August 8, 8pm
at The Mainstay (on Main Street)
$15 (Must be age 18 or older)

Hello Sailor
Come-all-ye seamen, wenches, and lusty laddies! A special event for Rock Hall's Pirates & Wenches Fantasy Weekend, "Hello Sailor! A Bawdy Song Sing-Along" is a raucous romp through centuries of dirty ditties. Come in good voice (or just a loud one) and join in with master balladeers Jennifer Cutting, Steve Winick, Riki Schneyer and Craig Williams on the choruses of naughty songs that have come down to us from medieval brothels, pubs, tall ships, British music halls, armies, navies, schoolyards, and wherever such songs are sung. This will be an ample show of shameless songs that have propelled innocent sailors to their moral doom from time immemorial. The group (which contains an ethnomusicologist, a folklorist, a traditional singer and a member of Pyrates Royale) has conducted research into dusty archives of depravity and delight that will ensure that this isn't just any old bawdy songs show - you're bound to hear refreshingly raunchy songs you've never heard before and be entertained in the time-honored tradition of gathering to raise our voices in song. No experience necessary but bring your sense of humor. Must be age 18 or older.
