Gather at Pequot Library to celebrate the current exhibition, Charting Your Course: Cutting-Edge Navigation and Seafaring, with song, drink, and general merriment. Join some of the top sea shanty performers in New England for what will surely be an entertaining evening. Bartenders will be mixing “grog,” based on a British naval recipe inspired by author Patrick O’Brian.
Performer highlights include: Marc Bernier, who spent five years as the Mystic Seaport Chanteyman. Essex’s famous Griswold Inn delights audiences every Monday evening with a sea shanty night– Pequot Library is delighted to welcome their house group, the Jovial Crew, to this event, in addition to several other groups.
