Sea Chantey Fest Held Aboard Star of Indiaposted: 7/29/2013
Traditional sea chanteys, or songs of the sea, recount the adventure, romance and joy, and sometimes tragedy of a sailor’s life, in music.
This year’s musical lineup includes The Jackstraws at 11 a.m., Jeff Pekarek at 11:55 a.m. and 4:15 p.m., Raggle Taggle at 12:30 p.m., John Kraus at 1:25 p.m., Panamerican Shanty at 2 p.m., John Kraus and the Goers at 3:20 p.m. and a group finale at 4:45 p.m.
During the Sea Chantey Fest, the Star of India crew will demonstrate various shipboard skills, accompanied by traditional sea chanteys -- and visitors will have a chance to join in and raise the sails of the historic ship.
Adult museum admission is $16; children 12 and younger are $8. The museum is located on the North Embarcadero, at 1492 N. Harbor Drive.
