Rockin' Ron The Friendly Pirate

“There is an undeniable campy appeal to his ruminations” – Dan Bolles, Seven Days (Vermont’s Independent Voice)

“With his clever lyrics and endless enthusiasm, it’s no surprise how easily he wins an audience” – Elizabeth Moison, author of Master of the Sweet Trade (A Story of Pirate Sam Bellamy, Mariah Hallet, and the Whydah)

Ahoy! My name is Ron Carter, aka Rockin' Ron the Friendly Pirate. Since 2002, I've performed Pirate Music for ALL Ages. I sing to my own guitar accompaniment and to tracks from my stylistically diverse albums Give Me an RRR, Pirate PaRRRty, The Flying Pirate Circus (2017 Children’s Album Grammy ™ consideration), and Talk Like a Pirate. I have released an illustrated children’s book called The Flying Pirate Circus, based on lyrics from my albums. My main port 'o call is Smugglers' Notch Resort – America’s Family Resort, and I have appeared throughout Northeastern North America at schools, libraries, and events.

My often interactive songs have boat loads of wordplay and nautical references. Topics include language (Give Me an RRR, Without the R, Talk Like a Pirate), history (Pirates & Privateers, Black Snake Tale, Pirate Grace O’Malley), special occasions (Pirate Birthday PaRRRty), and values (Seven C’s, Oona Uni-hook). My characters Pearl the Purple Pirate Princess, Scaredy Cat, Polly Esther Pants, Shark in the Dark, Tyrannosaurus RRR, and Cranky Pirate are easily relate-able. I am a graduate of Boston's Berklee College of Music where I received the Richard Levy Scholarship for Composition. My approach is Sesame Street meets Monty Python.

My music has sold around the world: USA, Canada, South America, Mexico, Europe, Russia, Asia, and Australia.
