In reading Mark Lovewell’s article on sea chanties and the musicians, I could not overlook the omission of Artie Look, a very talented self-taught musician who played the piano accordion and harmonica simultaneously. Artie, along with Hollis Smith on fiddle, played for many dances at the Chilmark Tavern and the Gay Head town hall.

Another addition to those musicians listed in Mark’s article would be guitar player Elmer Silva of Tea Lane Farm. Cousin Mildred would also have wanted these others mentioned.
