Music of the Sea: Ballads, Chanteys and Songs of the Sailor
Sharpen your musical skills in this four-class series while exploring the rich connections between music and the sea. Led by Mystic Seaport’s experienced chanteymen, this class will follow the functions of sea music in the work and lives of 19th-century sailors and will include both musical instruction and hands-on work experience aboard ships. The class will culminate in a performance at the Museum’s Greenmanville Church.
Class registration includes a set of “Bones” and a Songs of the Sailor booklet and CD. All skill levels are welcome.
