Well Met: Songs of the Sea

cleat with ropeMonday, June 4 from 10 – 11 AM
Sohier Room, Main Library

We’re happy to welcome back Ohio folk singer Judy Cook for a musical program featuring historic and traditional sea songs and ballads. These musical tales will include stories of men, women and the sea; shipwrecks; ghosts; and mermaids. The songs are funny and serious, chorus and narrative, ancient and not-so-ancient. Judy will accompany her music with projected images, including lyrics for choruses so all may join in the singing. A list of the songs with historical context will also be provided.

Free and open to adults, signup not required. Light refreshments included. Info: flynn@noblenet.org or 978-921-6062, ext. 2134. Sponsored by the Friends of the Beverly Public Library.

Judy Cook has been on the road since the early 1990s, making her own the songs and ballads of traditional Americana and the British Isles. She has family roots in Virginia, lucky enough to be born into a family who loved music. She is respected on both sides of the Atlantic as both a singer and interpreter of traditional songs. Her vast and varied repertoire has resulted in an array of entertaining and informative themed programs that are enthusiastically received wherever she goes.
