Geoff Kaufman in Concert: Songs of Whales and Whaling

April 28, 2011 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Whaling was one of the first trades to link the east coast of the US with many far-flung parts of the world, particularly the vast reaches of the Pacific from Antarctica and New Zealand to Hawai'i to Japan, Siberia, and Alaska. Many songs were sung by the whalers pursuing the hunt, but more recently songs have been written to help protect the whale. This program explores both sides, looking for musical clues to our relationship with the great leviathan.

Cost: Free for members/$5 for non-Members
