Sea Chantey Festival

Sunday August 26, 2018

The Maritime Museum of San Diego, along with San Diego Folk Heritage, presents Songs of the Sea – 26th annual Sea Chantey Fest.

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. The music begins at 11:30 a.m. and ends at 4:40 p.m. with a finale. Best of all, the whole event is included with Maritime Museum admission at no extra charge.

Visitors will enjoy sea chanteys and traditional folk music performed by popular local artists such as The Jackstraws, Gemini Junction, Raggle Taggle, 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.
