Led by the Folk Music Society of New York, this program is really gaining in popularity and offers a great opportunity to experience authentic, time-honored maritime songs in an appropriately historic setting. Sea Shanty Sessions are dedicated to William Main Doerflinger (1909-2000), the music scholar who collected traditional sailor’s songs from the residents of Sailor’s Snug Harbor.
The sessions are free and family friendly, and you are encouraged to sing along if the mood strikes you! If you can’t make it this weekend, we hold a session on the third Sunday of every month.
