Seeking some nautical tunes to take you into the warmer months? Look no further than local musician Ron Carter, better known as Rockin' Ron the Friendly Pirate. The swashbuckling singer, who describes his style as "'Sesame Street' meets Monty Python," recently released his third album,The Flying Pirate Circus. Some of its 28 songs are pure fun: "Bad Bad Blackbeard" is set to the tune of "Baa, Baa, Black Sheep," while the jazzy "Shark in the Dark" warns about a sneaky predator with a "toothy grin." Others are educational, like "Black Snake Tale," the true story of pirates on Lake Champlain, and the doo-woppy "Bow to the Bow," which demonstrates the directions on a ship, just in time for the sailing season.
