Please note: in case of rain, this performance will be held in the Historic Theater with socially-distanced seating.

Great Bay Sailor is an eclectic folk band based in Portsmouth, NH. Casting a wide net, the band performs out of an extensive repertoire of maritime, Irish/Scottish, British, and Oldtimey music. In the maritime tradition, they play and sing traditional and contemporary songs and tunes inspired by ships, sailors, oceans, and tall tales.

Mike Blair and Steve Carrigan sing the songs, with Steve also on guitar and bodhran. Jim Prendergast, a thirty year veteran of the Nashville music scene, plays guitar, mandolin, and banjo. Rounding out the mix is singer/songwriter Taylor Whiteside who tantalizes us with original songs, guitar, accordion, mandolin, and fiddle.

For Live Under the Arch events, capacity in the lower lobby (bathroom access) is limited to 10 people at a time. Anytime patrons are not seated at their tables, masks are to be worn.
