Ahoy! Every November for the past umpteen years KBOO Folk Strip hosts Jack, Jonathan, and Gordy team up to bring you a program of nautical themed folk songs of mayhem and merriment we call our Annual Gales of November show. The show takes its name from the immortal Gordon Lightfoot classic “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald,” which spellbindingly recounts the tragic tale of the then-largest freighter plying the Great Lakes, that sunk with all hands lost in the notorious 1975 November Gale.
Artists in this program include: Lee Murdock; Laura Bassett and David Kessler; Tom May; Dan Hall; Carl Behrend; Marley's Ghost; Gordon Lightfoot; Nanci Griffith; Song of the Lakes; Jonathan Lay; Dustin Rose; Bruce Molsky; Larry Kaplan; Harry Chapin; The Wellingtons; Shanghaied on the Willamette; Stan Rogers; Tony Rice.
Join us for a lively show sure to put a smile on your face. If you miss the live broacast, you can play the archived show from KBOO's website.
