GBS in Nottingham

Shanties, Foc’sl Songs, and Ballads

Maritime Music in more ways than one

Saturday’s concert at the Nottingham Community Church was a great success.  Part of the mission of Great Bay Sailor is to explore and share a wide variety of material with new audiences.  To some, there may be a preconceived idea as to what maritime music is supposed to be or sound like. Last night’s concert would likely cause a paradigm shift in those who think of the seafaring genre as simply boisterous working songs.  We attempt to share the diversity of sound and culture that represents the true music of the waterways.  So, please stop in to one of our shows and let us share our love of the music with you.

A Different Side of the Sailors

For a different flavor, try Thursday nights at the Stone Church Meeting House in Newmarket.  This music is not the usual GBS concert repitiore, but it will get you warmed up for the more erudite Nottingham Great Bay Sailor concert coming up
