Event Navigation

John C Van Orman plays music

Come pull up a picnic table or BYO lawn chair for a live music performance on the Commons, weather permitting. Folk musician John C. Van Orman will sing a selection of traditional sea shanties, lyrical sailor songs, and nautical ballads while accompanying himself on concertina, guitar, and hurdy-gurdy. Such songs are the narratives of countless laborers who have worked on water, sailors of every kind, and the people with whom they interacted, heroically or not-so-much-so. They form a mythology of life on, in, and along the water. Masks and distancing required.
