Come sing along!
The Rusty Hinges are a midcoast Maine band who will be playing a wide variety of genres that will include sea shanties, folk songs, oldies, love songs and more. Some sea songs you may recognize (and you’re encouraged to sing along), such as Drunken Sailor, Sloop John B, Water is Wide, and Row the Old Chariot Along. They will also be happy to play special requests.
The bandmates include John Couch from Bristol on guitar, Brian Dunn from Waldoboro on banjo and mandolin, Charles Chairchairo from Nobleboro playing the resonator guitar, John Monterisi from Nobleboro on guitar, and Nancy Jones from Warren playing guitar, fiddle, and pennywhistle. Every Tuesday night you can hear them play at The Narrows Tavern in Waldoboro, as well as other venues across the midcoast .
The band has extended an invitation to other salty dogs (who are expected to show up!) to perform their favorite sea shanties. We may also hear from some familiar schooner captains and Camden’s own harbormaster.
The talk is free of charge and open to the public. Donations at the door will be gratefully accepted to benefit the non-profit Camden Area Youth Seamanship Program (CAYSP).
