SAVANNAH Riverboat Cruises is offering the unique opportunity for Savannahians to hear traditional Gullah music live and in person while on the water.

As attendees feast upon a Southern-inspired dinner buffet, the Geechee Gullah Ring Shouters will perform, dance, and tell stories. As direct descendants of African slaves, the group offers history and heritage preservation by continuing the tradition of their ancestors. The Geechee Gullah Ring Shouters are making history themselves, having set the world record for largest ring shout in the world at the Smithsonian Anacostia Museum in Washington, D.C. Their achievement is documented in the Guinness Book of World Records.

The cruise boards at 6 p.m., and it’s free for children under four.

Wednesday, October 11, boarding at 6 p.m., sailing from 7-9 p.m., $59.95 for adults, $35.95 for children via savannahriverboat.com, all-ages
