Maritime Music

Music's Relationship with the Sea

June 8, 2019 - October 20, 2019 | 12:00pm - 5:00pm | Maine Maritime Museum

Supported by a Maine Humanities Council Arts & Humanities Grant

Maine Maritime Museum’s Maritime Music exhibit explores the history of the music and musicians that compose the symphony of the sea. Through collaborations with local artists, the exhibit features traditional and non-traditional arrangements of maritime working songs, known as sea shanties.



Arts & Humanities Grants, a partnership between the Maine Humanities Council and the Maine Arts Commission, support innovative community projects that have BOTH arts and humanities components.
