Jennifer Armstrong with "Scared for Life!"

Jennifer Armstrong will tell stories that have scared her throughout her life, beginning at age two with 'Abi Yo Yo'. Other stories and songs include: 'Barney McCabe' (a Hansel and Gretel tale from the Georgia Sea Islands), 'Kachunk' (a story from the Chippewa-Cree), 'The Griesly Bride' ( a song from Australia), and more!

Says Jennifer: "I tell traditional and personal stories from my Celtic-American heritage and play the Scottish bagpipe, fiddle, banjo and guitar. I began my storytelling and instrument playing at a young age. I attended Donald Lindsay's Invermark College of Piping in upstate New York for a number of summers during my teens. Since then I've opened festivals, piped at funerals, weddings, birthday parties and graduations, given lessons to beginners and continued to attend bagpipe summer schools whenever I can."

Seanachie Nights presents:
Roll & Go: Songs from the Golden Age of Sail!
Plus, sea stories from Lynne Cullen and Jenny Hinckley

Monday, February 21, 7 - 9pm
Bull Feeney's Irish Pub, 375 Fore Street, Portland, Maine
FREE ($9.00 suggested donation)

For this sea-going event, storyteller/musicians Lynne Cullen and Jenny Hinckley will be joined by special guests Roll and Go, who will sing shanties from the legendary Age of Sail.

Roll & Go is a Maine group of men and women who love to sing "sea shanties" and other songs of the sea. Over the past 18 years their spirited performances have earned them a growing reputation among festival and concert goers in Maine and New England. The group has been featured at the Great Schooner Race in Penobscot Bay, the Maine Festival, the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath, the Mystic Sea Music Festival (CT), the Portsmouth Maritime Festival (NH), the Pilgrim Museum & Monument in Provincetown (MA), as well as many tall-ship special events and community concerts. Singing mostly unaccompanied, they combine strong solo work with tight harmonies on the refrain and chorus. Some songs are backed up by banjo, guitar, concertina, washtub bass and/or pennywhistle. In 2002 they released their first CD, Outward Bound. Their second CD, Rolling Down to Sailortown, was released in 2006 and their most recent CD, Look Out, was released in 2010.

With Roll & Go you'll hear the old songs brought back to life, and some newer songs that highlight current conditions in our merchant marine and fishing industry. Whether you're young or old, you're bound to have a lot of fun!

Lynne Cullen is a storyteller, playwright, and concertina player. She is a member of LANES (League for the Advancement of New England Storytelling), MOOSE (Maine Organization Of Storytelling Enthusiasts), and the Society for Storytelling in England.

Jenny Hinckley is a folk-singer, song-writer, nascent storyteller, and retired Classics professor. For this show, she will present three glimpses of life on, in or near the waves... one irreverent, one serious, and one from a entirely unique point of view!
