    June 27, 2022, 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM

    Online. While you are out exploring the oceans of possibilities during the days of summer, why not sing a song or two? The third installment of RPL’s folk music podcast, Come Gather ‘Round Good People, will focus on tunes with a sea-faring theme collected by folklorists on North Carolina’s Outer Banks during the 1940’s. You’ll be introduced to Tink and Eleazor Tillett of Roanoke Island who shared songs about pirates and other ocean related topics. Learn about the history of the highlighted melodies and know you’ll be well-equipped to bellow out your songs as you set sail! Visit the RPL Soundcloud channel at bit.ly/RPLSoundCloud. Children.
