Join SCCF on the inaugural voyage of a new sunset concert series – Pine Island Sounds – as Uproot Hootenanny turns the upper deck of the Lady Chadwick into a foot-stomping, picker’s paradise on Sunday, Dec. 15. This four-piece band features some of South Florida’s top string instrument players in energetic performances of bluegrass classics to Irish-folksy tunes.
Offered in partnership with Captiva Cruises, the intimate voyage will depart from McCarthy’s Marina at 4 p.m., then cruise until the sun sets at about 6 p.m. Named after the amazing estuary that lies between Pine Island and the barrier islands of Sanibel, Captiva, North Captiva and Cayo Costa, Pine Island Sounds supports SCCF’s independent Marine Lab.
By enjoying an unforgettable sunset concert cruise in the sound, you’ll be supporting SCCF’s efforts to encourage science-based water management practices at the federal, state, regional, and local levels. A $60 ticket includes light snacks and one complimentary beverage. Boarding guests will receive a “First Drink’s on Us” voucher made possible by an anonymous and much-appreciated donor.
