Voices of the Sea

March 14

7 p.m. — 8:30 p.m.  Musical Events  Special Events

Maine Maritime Museum will present its third annual Voices of the Sea program with two evenings of unique presentations and at two locations.

Must register separately if attending both events. Doors open at 6PM for the Portland event and 6:30pm for the Bath event. 


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.  Imagery of a life working the sea will accompany the performances adding a stunning visual element to the evening’s activities.
