Reminder!

Although there will be another alert as we get closer, now’s the time to mark your calendars… And get your tickets!  On Friday 28 July we’re playing aboard the Becky Thatcher, leaving the dock in Deep River for a little river cruise between 6p and 9p, singing all the way!  Tickets are 45$ and you should either call 800.377.3987 or visit the website essexsteamtrain.com.  Your ticket gets you a train ride from the station in Essex up to rendezvous with the riverboat, time with us, and the return trip via the train to your vehicles back in Essex!  Perfect date night!

International Mariners

Monday – 10th July – we’ll be in the Covered Bridge Room (the back room) for a command performance for the combined groups of the Swiss Mariners (Basel) and the Ancient Mariners (Guilford).  We expect that the chantey group from both groups and maybe even the formidable Marc Bernier will get up to sing!  You might inquire for table space – dinner.  Like our St-Pat’s night/Survivor’s Night we’ll have a speaker in the tap room for your listening pleasure.

Let The Good Times Ring!

Sea Music Festival and Survivor’s Night

Here we are again!  This weekend is the annual Sea Music Festival (see the flyer below) AND THEN…

On Monday the 12th will be our annual hosting of Survivor’s Night at the Griswold Inn!  I understand that all the tables have already been booked, but we’ll have a speaker in the tap room so that you’ll hear what’s going on, and usually the room opens up for standing room after the tables have been cleared.  TAKE NOTE: this is not our usual weekly performance!  It’ll be more of a concert format – We’ll open per usual but then there will be A LOT of guests both professional and amatuer and they will be singing their hearts out for you!  Give them your attention and participation… The tap room is where the conversations should take place.

When daffodils begin to peer

When daffodils begin to peer,
With heigh! the doxy, over the dale,
Why, then comes in the sweet o’ the year;
For the red blood reigns in the winter’s pale.
The white sheet bleaching on the hedge,
With heigh! the sweet birds, O, how they sing!
Doth set my pugging tooth on edge;
For a quart of ale is a dish for a king.
(The Winter’s Tale, 4.2.1-8)
