Sea Chanties in San Francisco!


Along with other groups and individuals, the Lighthouse String Band participated in a special anniversary celebration dedicated to the "Sea Chantey" in San Francisco on October 1, 2011. The band performed at mid-pier near the historic ship Balclutha. Everyone was welcome to participate in a sing-along later on that evening. The Chantey Sing takes place on the first Saturday of every month. You can join the Hyde Street Pier Chantey Sing Facebook Group.
