We're back, and ready to play!

Hopefully the plague will soon be a memory. We've had our ship careened by the master shipwrights Moderna, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson, and setting sail with masks on and instruments tuned.

Masked-up, vaxxed-up and ready to rock!

Tom Mason and the Blue Buccaneers are masked-up, vaxxed-up, and ready to hit the stage a what better way to emerge from a plague than a pair of renaissance faire-style pirate festivals? We'll be celebrating spring in the open air in Des Moines, Iowa, and then in Harriman Tennessee on the Cumberland Plateau. Here are the details:




May 8 & 9, 2021 Gathering of the Sails at Sleepy Hollow Renaissance Faire Park, Des Moines, Iowa

  We'll be playing two acoustic sets on both Saturday and Sunday with a full electric show late Saturday afternoon.  There will be all kinds of Renaissance Faire and piratical entertainment during the day and a bawdy adult after our show. Whether you buy a ticket to the daytime event or the evening event on Saturday, you'll see our show. A beautiful spot on the Cumberland Plateau.  https://sleepyhollowevents.com/


May 22 & 23 and May 29, 30, & 31 2021 11-6  Tennessee Pirate Festival, Harriman Tennessee. We'll be playing acoustic shows every day at this Renaissance Faire style festival. 


If music be the food of love, play on! 

I'm absolutely thrilled to be playing Feste the Fool and be the composer/ music director for Nashville Shakespeare Festival's production of "12th Night". It will be directed by Jim Warren, the Founding Artistic Director of the American Shakespeare Center. Performance dates are Thursday-Sunday August 26- September 12 (plus Labor Day), as well as Saturday and Sunday September 18 & 19 in Franklin, Tennessee. 


We've been hearing that 2021 is the year of the Sea Shanty (isn't that every year?), so we're posting videos of some of the sea shanties we recorded on the cd Pirate Party. Here's a video of "Bully in the Alley" from our CD "Pirate Party", featuring footage from the silent film "The Black Pirate".

Here's another sea shanty from our Pirate Party CD, Drunken Sailor.
