Lorenzo Society Wednesday Concert: Before the Mast ⚓️
February 8 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
The Lorenzo Society is happy to remind you of the Weekly Wednesday Concert Series in honour of Dr. Li-Hong Xu continuing this Wednesday, February 15th.
Before The Mast is a sea shanty group based in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada. Saint John was once a major shipbuilding centre and whose tall ships routinely sailed to every major port in the world during the Age of Sail.
The men of the group sing to entertain, to introduce audiences to the amazing richness and vitality of shipboard work songs and to celebrate our rich and storied maritime heritage. By necessity, shanties were sung without instrumental accompaniment. Before The Mast sings a-cappella to honour this tradition.The Lorenzo Society is excited to welcome the Before the Mast as this week’s Wednesday musicians.
