Melodies of the Croatian Coast Come to History Museum

From one coastline to another, Harbor History Museum is thrilled to announce a Croatian klapa performance by the Seattle-based klapa group, KlapaDooWopella, at 2:00pm on June 26, 2016 at Harbor History Museum.

Originally formed in 1979, KlapaDooWopella sings traditional Croatian klapa songs. Klapa is a popular acapella-style of music sung along Croatia’s Dalmatian coast. Reflecting themes such as love, loss, and the lives of fishermen, the songs evokes the heart of Croatian culture. KlapaDooWopella is comprised of Ted Hunter (lead), Jim Hoath (baritone), Phil Parham (high tenor), and Bill Weis (bass). KlapaDooWopella performs widely both around the Pacific Northwest and along the Croatian coast, including hot spots such as the islands of Hvar, Rab, and Vis.

This talented quartet will perform at 2:00pm on June 26, 2016 at Harbor History Museum. Complimentary traditional Croatian snacks will be served and concert goers will have the opportunity to enjoy several Croatian cultural activities, including a Croatian language booth and a craft for all ages. Tickets are $10 for members, $15 for non-members, and $5 for children 3-12. Children under the age of 3 are free.
