Mystic Seaport will host a Pub Sing and Chantey Blast today from 1 to 5 p.m. Attendees are invited to join with the Mystic Seaport chantey singers and performers from across New England as they sing maritime ballads, chanteys and other songs of the sea.
Admission is free, but donations are accepted to help support the museum's Sea Music Festival. Fans of traditional sea music gather at Mystic Seaport each year to hear American and international performers celebrate the musical traditions of the Golden Age of Sail. The 2013 festival will take place from June 6 to 9.
The event will be held at the Mystic German Club's Frohsinn Hall at 54 Greenmanville Ave., across from the museum's main entrance. Beverages will be available for purchase by the club. All ages are welcome.
