J. Revell Carr, III
Carr knows the Charles W. Morgan well. As a boy he stood on her deck as she was floated down the river after her first major restoration in Mystic. He worked as a Mystic Seaport interpreter and demonstration squad member during his high school and college years, and now, as an ethnographer, historian, educator, and sea music scholar and performer, he returns to the ship regularly as a participant in the Museum’s annual Sea Music Festival. Carr is currently Associate Professor of Ethnomusicology at UNC Greensboro, having earned his Ph.D. at UC Santa Barbara.
