Our Sea Songs and Sea Lives: Voices of the Many series continues as we explore the roles of diverse sailors and their treatment in traditional maritime songs.
This month, join chantey singers Lafayette Matthews (he/him) and Jules Peiperl (they/them) , and sailor Miriam Rocek (she/they), to explore the history of queerness in traditional sailing as reflected in traditional songs - hidden in plain sight. We’ll also discuss how the world of traditional music has become a gathering place for members of the LGBTQ+ community. Special guests include singer/songwriter Alex Sturbaum (they/them) .
The presentation will include many songs, and lyrics will be provided so guests can sing along from home.
