Sea Chantey Festival
August 26, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
For centuries, sailors have honed their shipboard skills to the cadence of songs recounting the adventure, tragedy and romance of life at sea. These “sea chanteys” and the sailors life they describe, come to life aboard the Star of India. Featuring national, regional and local performers, the music begins at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 5:00 p.m. with a group finale. The event is included with Maritime Museum admission at no extra charge.
Visitors will enjoy sea chanteys and traditional folk music performed by popular local and national artists such as The Jackstraws, The Bilge Pump band, Gilman Carver and more. The Star of India sail crew will demonstrate various shipboard skills traditionally accompanied by sea chanteys and visitors will have a chance to join in and raise the sails of the historic ship.
