“A sailor is an artist whose medium is the wind,” said Webb Chiles.
In the spirit of expression and creativity, some local sailors are stacking art upon art and turning it into a unique sailing, singing and reciting experience. “We’re Bay Station Band’s ‘Love the Bay’ music and sailing video series,” wrote Deborah Crooks, who, along with California-based songwriter/musician Kwame Copeland, collaborates with their musical friends “to create a diverse form of Americana music. Drawing on their literary and roots tendencies, their songs are imbued with aspects of Americana, blues, jazz, pop, rock and roll.”
Here’s a sampling of Bay Station Band, and a link to their YouTube channel.
