Song of the Island Seas
Created by David Peterson
The inaugural show of the Heritage Ensemble in 1970, Song of the Inland Seas is a musical revue of the nineteenth century on the Great Lakes. Weaving jokes, journal entries, and narration together with authentic folksongs, three different companies of performers over the years have given their voices to this music. All told, close to twenty songs combine in this production to evoke the powerful, dashing world of Great Lakes sailors. Produced in 1990 & 2001.
