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.
