Haakon Vatle leads Norway’s Storm Weather Shanty Choir. He’s got some great tour stories and actually uses sea shanties on a ship he’s the general manager for. Come for the tall ship experience and stay for the crazy wedding story.
In this episode:
How his time on a Norwegian tall ship taught him about the real life usefulness of sea shanties
How a couple super hardcore fans made their first Japanese tour happen
How accepting a gig as a wedding band turned into a unique first tour of the US.
- How he bent the rules in university to study the music he loves.
