John shares coastal Carolina folklore with songs and stories in living history programs performed in costume. The legends, heroes and characters that make up our coastal heritage come alive from the Lost Colony to pirates to lifesavers to blockade runners. Sing along and clap along to favorite folk songs with guitar and old-time banjo. He features the Lifesaving and Lighthouse Services in his Shipwrecks and Sea Songs programs. Performances are for audiences of all ages. John’s programs emphasize the history studies in the NC school curriculum. He performs concerts for schools, libraries, museums, historic sites and festivals.
