Tom Mason and the Blue Buccaneers are a wild band of accomplished Nashville musicians who play a rollicking mix of piratical sing-alongs, rousing historical rave-ups, afro-cuban tinged ballads, and

bluesy Irish jigs, dressed as pirates! The Blue Buccaneers play with the fervor of the Pogues and the sensitivity of the Buena Vista Social Club. Their songs transport you to the wildest pub in Port Royal at the turn of the 18th century, their CDs are rowdy and evocative works that transcend any aspect of novelty that one might expect at first glance, and their showmanship and musicianship make for a memorable performance.

Tom Mason and the Blue Buccaneers have three CD's out and will be releasing their fourth in 2016. They have toured the world, playing at such events as the Port Fairy Folk Festival in Australia, Tall Ships Festivals in Norway and on the Great Lakes, The Minnesota State Fair, Pirate Festivals in America and Great Britain, and tour regularly in the US, the UK, and Caribbean. 

 The Blue Buccaneers tour most frequently as a four piece band, though often Tom Mason will give solo or duo educational performances or private shows.

 Tom Mason isn't just a songwriter, singer and guitar virtuoso, he's a terrific entertainer... his pirate songs have choruses that the audience can bellow along with, the best way to enjoy pirate music”

 

— John Baur, co-creator of “Talk Like a Pirate Day”

“Mason’s as talented at tale-spinning as he is at fret-work”

— Dave Marsh, Rock & Rap Confidential

“The Blue Buccaneers were definitely a big hit with the crowd, the perfect entertainment for a Tall Ships Event!”

— Bob Desh, Executive Director, Door County Maritime Museum

“One of Nashville’s most engaging musical scoundrels”

— Jim Ridley, Nashville Scene

ARRR! This be the 300th anniversary of the death of Blackbeard off of Ocracoke Island. Legend tells that he was decapitated and his body thrown into the ocean, and that his headless body swam around the ship nine times. To commemorate the occasion Tom Mason and the Blue Buccaneers are traveling to Ocracoke tomorrow to play at the 2018 Blackbeard Pirate Jamboree on Ocracoke Island on Friday and Saturday. While there, I'm hoping to get a swimming lesson! www.tommason.net www.facebook.com/events/193922537854968/

EXCELLENT show at the TN Pirate Fest!

Hello Tom, my pirate friend. I know it will be fantastic again, every time. Do not forget to put the anchorage.

I had the good fortune to spend the last two weekends playing music on the Florida Panhandle, Sept 27-30 in Apalachicola, St George Island, and Cape San Blas with Cat Braaten, and Oct.5-7 with The Blue Buccaneers in Panama City Beach. All of these places were devastated by Hurricane Michael. (One venue, Bowery Station, is pictured) So many friends, wonderful people, have lost so much. Here are a few ways people can help, at least monetarily: Habitat for Humanity www.habitat.org/donate/?keyword=promo1--home&link=972
Save the Children:
www.savethechildren.org
American Red Cross:

Thanks!

We had the greatest time back at the Pirates of the High Seas Festival in Panama City Beach this weekend. Now we'd like to send our piratical prayers down to our wonderful hosts, crews, and fans down there and along the panhandle for safety in these next few days as Hurricane Michael threatens. Stay safe me hearties!
This Saturday and Sunday we'll be in Harriman Tennessee for the Tennessee Pirate Fest, far from those storms of the seas. www.facebook.com/Tennesseepiratefest/

We're off to the Pirates of the High Seas Festival in Panama City Beach this weekend! This will be our fifth raid on this fun festival (last year a tropical storm kept us away), and it is so much fun. We play Saturday at the Pier Park Stage at 3:30, Sunday at the Grand Lagoon at noon, and tomorrow night we'll be playing a piratical meet and greet (sounds dangerous) at Shuckums at 8 PM. Here are some photos from previous years, taken by Dara Adams, Carol Allsup, and Daniel Shrock. www.facebook.com/events/513427655765466/ ... See MoreSee Less
