Simon SpaldingSimon Spalding performs at City Stage New Bern on Thursday, March 21!  Simon combines songs, tunes, and storytelling to weave an intricate tapestry of exploration, adventure, and far-off lands and seas.

The songs include singalong sea chanteys, Ragtime, ballads by Rudyard Kipling and Stephen Foster; and tunes from far-flung corners of the globe.  Simon will perform translations of songs from Turkey and Russia, as well as his new original song, “Casey and the Bear”!
