Pirates Ahoy! Tom and Pirate Band
Thursday, June 9
Adams Memorial Library
To kick off the Summer Reading Program, Adams Memorial Library is bringing back Tom Mason and the Blue Buccaneers as our first program of the season. So who are these pirates of the high seas and why does anyone want to list to sea shanties?
Tom Mason and the Blue Buccaneers are accomplished musicians who have traveled around the world singing and entertaining in a pirate manner. Their songs transport you to Port Royal at the turn of the eighteenth century. But none of the songs are old, rehashed ditties, but newly composed musical numbers that draw "on the fact that pirates sailed the world around and pirate crews were an international lot, so their music would be a medley of styles plundered from all over." This allows Mason and his crew of musicians to write and play music with a flair from every land and every century. They have delighted audiences from Florida to Iowa to California, the British Isles and Australia. You may have been lucky enough to see them on Bluegrass Underground on PBS broadcast from Cumberland Caverns. If you haven't seen his show you can catch it on December 10, 2016, when he returns to the caverns for a repeat performance.
Tom and the Pirates stage a show for all ages. The music isn't too rowdy for the kids nor too simple for the adults. His band is professional and rip-roaring from start to finish. Don't miss it. Come to Adams Memorial Library on Thursday, June 9, at 1 p.m. for toe tapping good time of music and fun. Aaaarrrgg, me mateys.
