Heritage to Perform at 19th Annual San Diego Wooden Boat Festival, June 20-21, 2009

SAN DIEGO, Calif.—The old-time music group Heritage will perform at the 19th annual San Diego Wooden Boat Festival, June 20-21, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Koehler Kraft Boat Yard on Shelter Island (2302 Shelter Island Drive, San Diego, CA 92106).

Larry - Capt. Friar - Edwards and Chuck - Capt. Strummer - Preble Dressed in pirate garb, Larry "Capt. Friar" Edwards and Chuck "Capt. Strummer" Preble will fiddle the dance tunes and sing the songs of our forefathers, including reels, hornpipes, jigs and sea shanties. And they might just tell the occasional pirate joke.

Capt. Friar: How much did the pirate pay to get his ears pierced?
Capt. Strummer: I don't know, how much?
Capt. Friar: A bucc-an-eer! Aaaarrrgh!

This is the fourth year running that Heritage has performed at the Wooden Boat Festival.

Bob the Parrot Special encore appearance: Bob the Parrot. (Why is the parrot called Bob? He fell overboard one day. Squaaarrrrrghk!)

Heritage performs regularly at San Diego-area mountain man rendezvous as well as historical encampments, schools, museums, festivals, fairs and special events.

Edwards and Preble are both members of the Corps of Rediscovery, a group of dedicated living history re-enactors specializing in the time period 1740 to 1840.

Dressed in period costumes, Friar and Strummer play authentic music of the 18th and early 19th centuries on fiddle, banjo, mandolin, guitar and tin whistle. They portray mountain men, members of the Lewis & Clark expedition (including Pierre Cruzatte, the one-eyed fiddler), colonials, Revolutionaries and pirates.
