Voices of the Sea

 

Salt water, it is well known, has always stimulated the imagination, and stirred the soul. The performers at Voices of the Sea, men and women who have gone down to the sea to make a living, will further demonstrate that passion through their unique and original poetry and song, capturing the spirit of Maine’s fishermen and those who work on the water. 

Past performers have included Frank Gotwals, a Stonington lobsterman and musician; Islesford lobsterman Jack Merrill who recently was invited to present at the Astoria FisherPoets Gathering (the original fisherman poets event); and Monhegan islander and poet Sally Woolf-Wade whose tender words gracefully conjure images of clam diggers, fisherman, the sister ships of Wiscasset and life on the water.

This event takes place at the Maine Historical Society, on Congress St in Portland.  Doors open at 6:30pm with a cash bar and the performance begins at 7pm.

 

Funding support for the 4th annual Voices of the Sea series comes from the Maine Humanities Council and the Maine Arts Commission
