2006 Sea Music Concert Series Announced

Northwest Seaport and Maritime Heritage Center has announced the first half of its 2006 Maritime Music Concert Series. The Seattle-based maritime history organization sponsors monthly concerts by leading Pacific Northwest maritime musicians. The concerts take place in the Center for Wooden Boats at South Lake Union Park, home to many of the region's most popular maritime history attractions. Seattle is a leading center for maritime music in the United States and the world, drawing musicians from Canada and Europe.

The 2006 concerts announced include:
  • March 25: The Cutters & Watch the Sky
  • April 22: Curtis & Loretta with Hank Cramer
  • May 20: Tom Lewis
  • June 17: Bold Horizon with Teresa Morgan
  • July 29: William Pint & Felicia Dale

Tickets are $10 general, $8 seniors, youth and members of maritime history organizations. All concerts start at 8 p.m. Proceeds support Northwest Seaport and Northwest musicians who celebrate maritime heritage in song. More information is available on the Maritime Heritage Network Calendar page.

Northwest Seaport is also nurturing the ancient tradition of shanty singing with monthly shanty sing-alongs at South Lake Union Park. The sing-alongs occur every second Friday of the month. More information is available in the Calendar section of Maritime Heritage Network.
