PULLMAN, Wash. — The Seattle duo William Pint and Felicia Dale will perform seafaring music during two free concerts at Washington State University June 21.
The free concerts form part of a series of summer concerts presented by the Office of Student Programs, and are set for noon–1 p.m. on Glenn Terrell Mall and from 7-9 p.m. at the Library Plaza. In case of rain, the concerts will be in the Compton Union Building Lair. The CUB food service will sell barbecued food at the noon performance.
Pint and Dale perform traditional chanteys and modern songs reflecting the spirit of those who live and work on the sea. Their music fits into the world of modern folk, rock and popular song but is rich with the myth, narrative, rhythm, rhyme and lyric associated with the days of the tall ships.
Dale plays Irish pennywhistles and a hurdy-gurdy, a type of mechanical violin that dates back to at least the 12th century. Pint accompanies himself on a guitar and mandolin.
This duo has many supporters in the United States as well as in Great Britain, Germany, Poland and the Netherlands through their appearances at festivals and concerts as well as their seven recordings.
