Sea Music Festival

June 9 - June 12

Mystic Seaport is proud to host its 37th annual Sea Music Festival, one of the world’s premier sea music events. Fans of traditional sea music gather each year to hear national and international performers, along with the Museum’s chantey staff, perform music from the golden Age of Sail through the best of contemporary compositions.

The weekend’s festivities include daytime and evening concerts, special performances for children, instructional workshops, a unique opportunity to witness sea music at work aboard historic vessels, and the Music of the Sea Symposium. This two-day collaborative program explores the interaction between sea, music, and song and features subjects from history and folklore, to literature, ethnomusicology, and other related topics.
