Our job is to introduce Charleston – the history, the beauty, the traditions – to visitors and to celebrate our great city with locals. The holiday season is a perfect time to bring some of our best Lowcountry traditions to life. So we’re welcoming The Plantation Singers aboard The Carolina Queen for a holiday dinner cruise.
Take a two-hour tour around the Charleston Harbor while enjoying a gourmet buffet dinner plus holiday music and spirituals from The Plantation Singers. This talented group of performers is an a cappella group that began in 1996 under the direction of Lynnette White (pictured left), who has used her music and theater background to bring entertainment to Charleston.
The Plantation Singers has performed at Spoleto Festival USA, nationally and internationally in Italy, South Korea and Spain. The group’s efforts help preserve the spiritual music that has such deep roots in Charleston history.
The Plantation Singers have been awarded the Three Sisters Award by the Committee To Save The City in recognition of the group’s contribution to the special character of Charleston. Local artist Rhett Thurman has also featured the group in an art series.
We’re sure you’ll be clapping your hands, tapping your feet and singing along during our holiday dinner cruise as The Plantation Singers perform a mix of holiday favorites and Gullah spirituals. Gullah is a language spoken by slaves in South Carolina and Georgia so hearing from this group gives you a glimpse into our Southern past and culture.
Don’t miss this limited event. Dinner cruises are at 7 p.m. Nov. 30, Dec. 6, 13, 27, 28. Make a reservation online or call 888-224-5037.
