Sea Shanty Singalong, with Chris Maden

Chris MadenChris Maden has been singing and playing a variety of instruments since early childhood. A native New Englander, he was lured to the Barbary Coast of San Francisco seeking dot-com plunder, but was instead shanghaied into the seedy world of sea music by a bunch of pirates from Providence, and became a regular at the chantey sings at the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park. He moved to Portsmouth, New Hampshire, in 2008 and began pursuing maritime and traditional music more seriously.  The winds have blown hard, and he now finds himself far from shore and living in Urbana, but there’s no doubt that he’ll bring some salty spray with him to the the Folk and Roots Festival!
