On Thurs., 11/17, at 7:00 p.m., the Rum Soaked Crooks will serve up a Ffishy musical stew: at the New Bedford Fishing Heritage Center, 38 Bethel Street in downtown New Bedford, performing nautical and maritime songs related to fish. Tickets are $5 for the general public and free for FHC members. Tickets available on Eventbrite at https://bit.ly/rumsoakedcrooks2022
For the last three decades, the Rum Soaked Crooks have inflicted much musical and poetic damage with a pungent mix of sailors’ chanteys, ballads and ditties. There is often irrefutable evidence left in their wake: victims leaving the scene with toes tapping and choruses ringing in their heads, as they happily hum and whistle all the way home. Their repertoire spans three centuries of seafaring melody and verse.
The Crooks have shared their songs and stories at festivals and maritime events across the country and in Europe, and have recorded on the Smithsonian-Folkways and Whaling City Sound labels.
