The UV746 Tugboat hosts the first of the Steam Folk series, live broadcasts the focus on the stories of classic folk songs. In his broadcast from September 8th, the cast and crew of the steam warship get together to sing/talk/chant/howl from the engine room to the sterndeck and port scuppers. Telling stories and singing songs inspired by The Big Rock Candy Mountain. A tale of hobo utopia with a little dark side and a lake of stew.

We’re trying to raise a little money for a series of winter broadcasts. If you’re interested in helping out check it out here
