Join us for a funny, engaging, and touching one-man musical depicting the life and times of the Maritime fishery in story and song, Salt Water in Your Socks!
The heartwarming story of the life and times of a Maritime fisherman told through the tales and songs of Skipper Kevin Corkum, this one-man musical features John 'Spyder' Macdonald. It's an entertaining and uplifting show with classic folk songs and shanties, spine-tingling tales of life on the ocean, and many laughs.
"John 'Spyder' Macdonald delivers a superb mix of drama, comedy, and song."
deCoste Entertainment Centre, Pictou, N.S
"Salt Water In Your Socks is both a historical and musical tour-de-force depicting the lives of generations of coastal communities told through the tale of one old sea captain… This is the kind of show that has something for everyone and is worth seeing again and again."
Jon Stone – Helen Creighton Folklore Society, Halifax, Nova Scotia
