Markus Stuart Pirate 600pxHey ho, we’re bound for a workshop to learn sea chanteys and maritime ballads. Stuart Markus, a “lover of history and all things maritime,” is half of the sea chantey duo The Royal Yard, and one-third of Gathering Time, a folk-rock /Americana harmony group that has performed for Golden Link. Raised in Rochester, Stuart has been a fixture on Long Island's folk and acoustic scene since the mid-1990s, and serves on the board of the Folk Music Society of Huntington. 

A lifelong small boat sailor, he made his first voyage on a tall ship in OpSail '92 as a trainee on the HMS Rose
a replica of a 1757 British frigate (and which appeared as Russell Crowe's ship in the movie Master & Commander: The Far Side of the World). He has volunteered at South St. Seaport Museum in New York City, helping restore the Cape Horn Clipper RMS Wavertree, which he sailed during OpSail 2000. More information is available at

Stuart has been performing traditional nautical music since 1998. After the workshop you’ll no doubt know sea chanteys from nautical ballads from forebitters, and understand what on earth (or sea) sailors were singing about and why.
