Voices of the Sea Features Songs, Poetry by Maine Fishermen

Maine Maritime Museum, Voices of the Sea, song and poetry by Maine fishermen.

In 2012, the Maine Maritime Museum launched a program to showcase the talents of men and women who earn a living working Maine’s waters. Voices of the Sea gives these hard-working mariners the opportunity to provide a glimpse into the trials and beauty of their workaday world through music and poetry. Now in its third year, Voices expands its impact with 2 programs on 2 successive nights in 2 Maine cities with working waterfronts and adding maritime working images to the programs.
