Don Shappelle sings and writes many songs about the Chesapeake Bay, it’s people, it’s boats and the many rivers that flow into the bay. Don grew up on the banks of the mighty Susquehanna River so many of his songs are influenced by that great river. Don also performs sailing and water oriented songs by other artists. Don Shappelle accompanies his songs on 6 & 12 string guitar and harmonica. He has performed up and down the Chesapeake Bay in many settings over the years and counts singing onboard the Woodwind as one of his favorites.
