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

A wonderful Friday to all! Here in Tennessee music lovers have arrived from everywhere for the Country Music Festival in Nashville and Bonnaroo in Manchester, so welcome!! As it is going to be reaching the 90's today, and as there will be a dearth of pirate music at both of those festivals, we suggest you head to Nashville Shores to hear Tom Mason and the Blue Buccaneers while you swim! We play from 6:30-8 PM as the opening night of their Barefootin' Concert Series. www.nashvilleshores.com/…/special_ev…/barefootin.cfm ... See MoreSee Less

Avast! The Blunder Bus II has served us well, but after a quarter million miles the ships has become leaky, so with many journeys ahead we have taken the plunge and will be sailing to our next raids in a brand new Blunder Bus. Instead of resorting to our usual methods, we strongly suggest you purchase our treasure chest of our 4 CD's for $50 ($60 outside US) at tommason.net/store/ , and if you want them autographed or personalized write it in the special instructions. (There's also a tip jar somewhere on the website.) Thanks in advance! ... See MoreSee Less

Too hard to pick a favorite album. Although Alchemy is probably still my favorite even if it was pre pirate time.

Pirate's Christmas is my favorite!!

Get you one of these!

Or one of these!

Sad to she her go down mate. Always safe travels. JE

I hope this doesn't mean we all have to go down like the song says!!

“Pirate Party” has become my go-to album when I need a pirattitude boost, but they’re all great. “Decked Out Like the Devil” from the first album is still one of my favorites, and there is no song more fun to sing along with than “Throw Me in the Drink.”
