Norah at Bull Feeny's Pub tonight - Portland ME

7- 9PM @ Bull Feeny's in Portland MA - 375 Fore Street - upstairs -

Come celebrate 'Talk Like A Pirate Day' as a three day weekend, with Norah Dooley performing as pirate Mary Read, telling tales about the people she sailed with in the Golden Age of Piracy, and the wonders of the seven seas. In the early 1700s, Mary Read disguised herself as a sailor to survive in the harsh world and became a pirate quite by accident when her ship was overtaken by pirates and she was captured by the crew of Captain "Calico Jack" Rackham.

Performer Norah Dooley tells Mary's story in the first person, brandishing pistol and sword, and sharing pirate lore, secrets and seafaring stories from her sea bag. Some of her favorites are Maury O'Connor and the Mermaid (Ireland), Arion and the Dolphins (Greek), Ocean Born Mary (New England), and Mitsu and the Pirates (Japan). Norah plays the pennywhistle and leads songs and sea shanties, including John Kanaka, The Mermaid, and Run the Riggin' Again. Lynne Cullen will join 'Mary' on the concertina.
