This Friday, January 25th, from 8 to 10PM, a waterfront tradition will be returning to Brooklyn. The first of planned monthly shanty sings will be held at the Brooklyn Lyceum. All lovers of the music of the sea are welcome. This Friday’s session is being held in memory of Howie Leifer, who recently died of cancer. Howie was long-time member of the sea shanty community in New York, as well as a wonderful entertainer and gifted puppeteer.
The Brooklyn Lyceum is at 227 4th Avenue on the corner of President Street, in Brooklyn, New York. Accessible by subway on the R train to Union Street. Hot chocolate and mulled wine will be served to help keep away the cold. Cost: $5.00
