Join us for CRM’s newest concert series, Shanties & Sails!

You want to be on the deck to hear talented shanty and sea-song musicians for a FREE one hour live performance. Add onto your evening to continue the fun.  Book a trip on the Onrust! Seating on board the Onrust is limited for this one-of-a-kind event.

The Johnson Girls have been a force on the folk and maritime music scene for over two decades as the leading all-woman, a cappella maritime group in the world. Believing that sea chanteys and songs of the sea were the first real “World Music”, Joy Bennett, Alison Kelley, Bonnie Milner, and Deirdre Murtha each bring a special influence to the group. Whether performing at packed international folk festivals, intimate venues, workshops, or presenting school or library programs, The Johnson Girls remain true to their mission of keeping chantey singing and its history alive, bringing women’s voices to the fore, and encouraging everyone to join in the revelry. Widely acclaimed for their powerhouse performances of rousing work songs, sensitive renderings of haunting ballads and laments, and hair-raising harmonies, they sweep their audiences along in a tidal fervor.

A big Thank You shout out to our Shanties & Sails sponsor Privé Swiss Wellness for their generous
