Join renowned American Sea Shanty performer, David Coffin for a maritime concert at the Rice Public Library. From the singing of traditional sea chanteys to hoist the anchor and set the sails to the dance songs sailors sang in the doldrums, this is an interactive, singalong performance you won't want to miss.
David has performed throughout New England since 1980. His venues range from concert halls and coffeehouses to schools, radio, and museums. He has performed for weddings, birthdays, memorials, festivals, bonfires — you name it. He is equally adept firing up a crowd to sing, or at playing music in the background to create atmosphere (often during the same occasion!) Widely known for his rich baritone voice, his impressive collection of musical instruments includes concertinas, recorders, penny-whistles, bombards (loud Breton double reeds), gemshorns, cornamuse, shawm, rauschphieffe — or, as he explains, “generally anything that requires a lot of hot air.” Many of these instruments are used in his interactive programs.
