The 2011 The Southern Pirate Festival will feature boatloads of entertainment, from music to fire jugging. We’ll be highlighting some of the acts and groups here as we near the event. This time, it’s another crowd favorite from 2010. The Brigands.
Performing songs, sea shanties, tunes and tales, the Brigands return with the sounds of the Golden Age of Piracy to the Festival for your listening and dancing pleasure. Visit The Brigands home port (their website, ye landlubbers!), to watch videos and learn about the crew, or find them pillaging Facebook.
Watch this page for more upcoming acts, and come to The Southern Pirate Festival to see them all!
