Mystic, CT - Mystic Seaport will host a Pub Sing and Chantey Blast in support of the Museum’s 33rd annual Sea Music Festival Saturday, January 7, 2012, from 1-5 p.m. Snow date is Sunday, January 8.

Attendees are invited to join with the Mystic Seaport chantey staff and many outstanding performers from throughout the Northeast as they share maritime ballads, chanteys and songs of the sea. Admission is free, but a donation of $15 per person is suggested.

The event seeks to raise support for the Museum’s upcoming Sea Music Festival, one of the world’s premier sea music events. Several thousand people gather each year to hear the best American and international performers of maritime music celebrate the classic musical traditions of the Golden Age of Sail.

Some of the musicians expected to perform are Dan and Bonnie Milner, Robbie O’Connell and John Roberts.

“The chantey blast is a fun way for us to get people excited about the Sea Music Festival in June,” said Geoff Kaufman, a musician and member of the interpretation staff at Mystic Seaport who is a key organizer for the festival. “It is open to anyone who has an interest in sea music, and all are invited to participate. We gather some great performers and just have a fun time making music.”

The event is co-sponsored by the New York Pinewoods Folk Music Club and will be held at Frohsinn Hall, located at 54 Greenmanville Ave. in Mystic, Conn., across from the Museum’s main entrance. For more information, visit

The fundraising event is organized as part of the Friends of the Festival program that seeks to generate support for the annual Sea Music Festival to be held on June 7-10.
