When: Wednesday, May 2, 2007

Come celebrate another successful year at St. Ann’s Warehouse with the world premiere of Hal Willner’s Rogue’s Gallery Live, a concert of selected pirate ballads, sea songs, & chanteys. As a Benefit for Arts at St. Ann’s, music producer Hal Willner will bring his signature gift for matching maverick musicians with extraordinary material. These ancient tales of hardship, fate, lost love and lust scour the depths for the crystal allure that led men to the sea for hundreds of years. Rogue’s Gallery Live promises to be an ocean-rolling good time spent with a world class group of salty dogs, sea inspired cuisine, and a lot of fun.
