The Golden Age of Whaling

Category: KidsCategory: TeensCategory: Music
Location: Curtis Gallery

In the 1800's, New London, CT was the 3rd largest whaling port in the United States.  Through participatory stories and songs, Tom Callinan, the first CT State Troubadour, takes audiences of all ages on a voyage through the days of wooden ships and iron men.  Tom's powerful presentation of sea chanteys (work songs) is punctuated by the primal sound of the bodhran (traditional Celtic frame drum).
