MATTAPOISETT – Join the Mattapoisett Museum at 5 Church St. on Saturday, Sept. 10, at 1:00 p.m. for the return of the New Bedford Harbor Sea Shanty Chorus. 

The New Bedford Harbor Sea Chantey Chorus is one of the most harmonious crews to come ashore.

Their repertoire of work songs of the Yankee sailor and whaler reflects the region's rich maritime heritage. This 24-voice group sings ballads and ditties of global mariners and coastwise fisherfolk in North America, the Cape Verde Islands, and the British Isles. Be ready to have fun and learn how to "rant and roll like a true-born sailor.” 

NBHSCC is a volunteer group of the Schooner Ernestina-Morrissey.

This event will be held outdoors, and attendees are asked to bring their own chair. The rain date is Sept. 17. 

This event is free, but donations are gladly accepted.
