Rockin’ Ron the Friendly Pirate: Songs with Cover Art

Rockin' Ron's Messages in a Bottle

Ski Shanty

Ski Shanty is a sea shanty about skiing. It was inspired by Kim Reigel when I was meeting her and her family to go skiing. She said “we’ll sing ski shanties” – meaning we’d sing some of my Friendly Pirate songs whilst sailing down the slopes. The song namechecks trails at Smugglers’ Notch Resort that fit the pirate theme. The cover art by Garrett Beeman is an homage to the classic Ski Smugglers’ Notch poster from the late 1950’s. The Ski Shanty video, filmed by Thaddeus Homan, will feature me skiing with me guitar on Sterling Mountain, as well as some special guest appearances. Ski U later.
