Spanaway Bay, leaders
From the rocky shores of Spanaway Bay, south of the Puget Sound and directly above the center of the earth, sail the rollicking folk duo Spanaway Bay. Kent and Carol Mesford have been engaging audiences throughout the Puget Sound with an eclectic mélange of Maritime, Celtic, English and American folk songs since their trial by fire at the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival some years ago. This lively duo are the favorite chantey singers aboard the 1913 schooner Adventuress and they perform as members of Broadside and the Handsome Cabin Boys and The Great Sanger and Didele.
Admission is free but donations to benefit maritime preservation are welcome. Fun for all ages! Snacks and beverages will be available for purchase.
