The Motley Tones washed ashore at the Blackbeard Festival in Hampton, VA in 2010 and are now the region's most popular pirate performing group, entertaining adults and children alike with their unique blend of classical and oft-times amusing sea shanties. They are known for their highly interactive street shows and enthusiastic stage shows.
