Introducing our newest specialty trip – Music and Dancing with Edith & Bennett and The Gawler Family Band! This trip is the first of its kind and we are excited to break the Maine windjamming mold just ever so slightly. The deck of the Riggin will be filled with music and song and our evenings ashore will be packed with concerts and contra dancing. Performed by Edith Gawler, our own former crew member, Bennett Konesni, and The Gawler Family Band, this trip will be filled with music from these diverse, talented musicians. Who knows, maybe we’ll even have a few special guests as well.
Our 4-day/4-night adventure will take us to Belfast and Rockport and an uninhabited island where we’ll feast on lobster and dance on the beach to tunes from fiddle, drum, flute and who knows what else!? (Here’s a sneak peek of fiddle tunes on the beach.) What better way to launch a summer than with the happiness of harmony and the delight of dancing? Here’s a link to a short and sweet video of Edith and Bennett playing in the galley together.
Remember to book your trip before February 1st to take advantage of our Early Bird special. We are so looking forward to singing and dancing with you!
