Just so we’re all clear, in addition to being a multi-instrumentalist and lead guitar player for Rose’s Pawn Shop, John Kraus really is a captain! On LA Maritime Institute’s stunning Tall Ships, no less!
His experience as a captain filtered into his music. After learning traditional sea shanties while hoisting sails, he began incorporating them into his performances… and over time, he merged them with his love of Celtic musical textures and bluegrass.
“I’d like to think I’m reinventing the sea shanty,” Kraus boldly said.
Come and hear for yourself & celebrate St. Paddy’s Day at the Grand Annex.
