For 20 years, The Jolly Rogers have performed the best that maritime music has to offer. They've played across the United States and were even featured at the internationally-renowned Shanties Festival in Krakow, Poland. This album, "SCORE", celebrates this important milestone with 19 tracks of incredible sea music. With only two exceptions, each song on the album was written by The Jolly Rogers and have already proven to be among the group's most popular offerings.
Every song has a wonderful story to tell, but there are some that are proving themselves to be notable:
"The Devil's Reach" details the wild exploits of a pirate captain faced with daunting odds as he is surrounded by a blockade; "The Tempest" tells of a ship's crew staring at their own destruction at the hands of a hurricane; "The Spirit of the Outlaw" traces a dark dynasty of criminals through history and "Twisting in the Valley" is a fun, bawdy romp through some suggestive tongue-twisters. "The Day of the Clipper", a classic sea song written by Steve Romanoff, features a guest performance by an amazingly-talented maritime band called Bounding Main whose rich and diverse harmonies bring this song to life.
"SCORE" is your chance to discover the incredible talent, energy and sheer fun that has made The Jolly Rogers one of the finest sea music groups for 20 years!
