“Haul Away Joe!” Chris Hare and the Duck Pond Sailors

Wednesday, February 3 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Sussex's celebrated 'Duck Pond Sailors' will regale you with shanties, sea songs and other popular ditties from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. These are all songs that would have been sung on the boats, wharfs, and in the pubs of Shoreham port and town.

One of the singers, Chris Hare, an historian of local history and folklore, will talk about the songs and their history, as will other members of the group.

It promises to be an evening to shiver your timbers and to hoist the mainsail!
