Mystic Seaport Sea Music Festival

Mystic-Sea-Music-FestivalMystic Seaport is proud to host its 38th annual Sea Music Festival, one of the world’s premier sea music events. More than 5,000 people gather each year to hear an amazing array of performers from across the world perform maritime music ranging from the golden age of sail to the best of contemporary compositions. This year’s roster of performers includes musicians from Australia, England, France, across the U.S. from Tennessee to Michigan and the Northeast. The weekend’s festivities include concerts, special performances for children, instructional workshops, and a unique opportunity to witness sea music at work aboard our historic vessels.

As part of the Sea Music Festival, Mystic Seaport will also host the Music of the Sea Symposium. The Music of the Sea Symposium explores the interaction between sea, music, and song. As an integral part of the annual Sea Music Festival, this two-day symposium, co-sponsored by Mystic Seaport, Williams College, the Williams-Mystic Program, and the University of Connecticut at Avery Point, explores subjects from history and folklore, to literature and ethnomusicology, along with many other related topics.
