Sure, it's possible.
I want to point out one "special" thing about the chanter that fits the "pirate" theme quite well:
Chanters' offensive phrases (The Dragon Thrashed, the Dragon Wailed/Endless Host/Soft Winds and so on - everything that does a hit roll) also get an +12 accuracy bonus when the chanter wields a single one handed weapon. Thus it can make sense to play a one-handed chanter (with one sabre for example). Since pirates often swing here and here on ropes and throw this and that around they need a free hand.
I personally think that one single sabre fits a (former) pirate better than two (style-wise).
One-Handed Style does nothing for your chants, but it will lead to a god crit rate with the sabre, which is good in case you want to use Resolution (which I would), because it has increased crit damage and already has graze-to-hit conversion.
If you don't want to use offensive chants at all than this synergy is gone of course and you might as well go with small shield or dual sabre.
Most people decide between the "tank" way with low DEX,fat armor and Dragon Thrashed, not using a lot of invocations - or they go for an agile build whith short phrases in order to spam good invocations (Killers Froze Stiff can paralyze-lock whole groups with enough DEX, PER and INT. Or they make a summon-based chanter.
Swashbuckler sounds more like the second "agile" approach.
With Weapon Focus Ruffian you can always change between pistol or blunderbuss (and sabre). Since the chanter has access to the Hel-Hyraf invocation that lowers DR by 5, blunderbuss is a good pick. 5 DR times 6 projectiles is like +30 damage per shot... If you take Penetrating Shot as well your blunderbuss can overcome 14 DR without damage loss. Pistol doesn't need Penetrating Shot. To make the best use of Hel-Hyraf you can pick Island Aumaua, get Arms Bearer and carry 3 blunderbusses and one sabre set. Cast Hel-Hyraf, fire first blunderbuss, switch after every shot and then to sabres and close in.
If switching is too much micro for your taste (which I can totally understand) then stay with one gun.
Veteran's Recovery and Ancient Memory/Beloved Spirits stack by the way - so you can be quite sturdy without shield and with ok MIG and INT - just watch your health bar.
