Sea Music Festival – Cancelled

June 11 - June 14

Due to uncertainty around public events and the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Sea Music Festival is cancelled. We look forward to hosting the event again in 2021.

Join us for the 41st annual Sea Music Festival featuring four days filled with workshops, concerts, hands-on demonstrations, and a scholarly symposium – all celebrating the music of the sea! From songs of the golden age of sail to contemporary compositions, the Sea Music Festival includes a wide variety of sea music both modern and traditional, a children’s stage with special performances for families, and demonstrations of maritime work songs – or chanteys – aboard our historic vessels.

As one of the world’s premier sea music events, performers come from around the world and across the United States.

Daytime concerts, workshops, and the Symposium are included with Museum admission. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evening concerts require the purchase of a separate ticket.
