Please join us for a virtual chantey sing to honor the life of Dan Milner. Dan passed away in late September this year. He was a revered and much-loved singer and scholar in the sea music community.

Born in Birmingham, England, Dan traveled extensively throughout his life. He lived in many places, including Ireland, Canada, Brooklyn, and Queens. Dan’s passion for sea music, chanteys, and Irish traditional music, led him to record five albums, and to perform at many sea music festivals, schools, and folk music concerts. He will be greatly missed by all.
