Castlebay Maritime Concert
Join us for an evening of traditional seafaring songs of Maine with Castlebay. The concert will take place from 7-9 PM at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Castine at 86 Court Street. The event is free and open to the public.
These songs are part of a rich heritage of singing and storytelling that came with immigrants to Maine from Britain, Scotland, and Ireland. Some retain the original lyrics and melodies. Others have been changed as memory and environment have dictated. These songs give us a window into history, romance, anxiety, and humor shared by our ancestors at work and leisure.
