Camden folkmaster Gordon Bok and friends will present a free outdoor concert Friday, July 15 beginning 7:30 p.m. at Sharp’s Point South, Mechanic Street.

Bok, dubbed the poet laureate of those who go down to the sea in ships by Time Magazine, will be joined by Nick Apollonio, a local folk musician and guitar-maker, and other special guests. There is plenty of parking at Snow Marine Park, and concertgoers are encouraged to bring their own chairs or blankets for lawn seating.

The concert will follow the Maine Windjammer Association’s Parade of Sail (2 to 4 p.m.) and many of the participating vessels will be anchored off Sharp’s Point South, adjacent to the Sail, Power and Steam Museum, which will have extended evening hours. Exhibits include a working lime kiln, shipbuilding displays, nautical tools, a navigation room, shipwreck photographs, a knot exhibit, architectural half models, steam engines, antique machinery and more.
