WHEATON, Md. - For more than a decade, the men and women of Ship’s Company Chanteymen have been carrying on a boisterous tradition: leading open sings in Wheaton, Baltimore, Annapolis and Washington, D.C., in which they belt out work songs written by and about sailors.
Their goal: to preserve maritime culture and give folks an opportunity to raise their voices - and glasses - in celebration.
