The original art and music from a book about the true adventures of a little Vineyard girl who lived aboard her father’s whaling ship will be featured at a West Tisbury gallery opening in July.
Susan Convery Foltz, whose watercolors brought to life the story of Laura Jernegan in Thirty Dirty Sailors and the Little Girl Who Went a-Whaling, will host the opening Saturday, July 5, from 5 to 7:30 p.m., at M.M. Stone Gallery at 671 North Tisbury Road.
Joining her will be popular folklorist and performer Dillon Bustin, who wrote the music on which the book is based.
Bustin will perform his children’s song, Thirty Dirty Sailors, and other music from his original folk opera about Vineyard history called Tidebook.
