ROCKLAND — The 2019 concert series sponsored by Rockland Folk Arts will continue on Friday, Oct. 18, with the second annual “all-voices-on-deck” concert celebrating music of sailors and the sea.

The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Sail, Power and Steam Museum, 75 Mechanic St., with a hearty crew of Midcoast Maine-based singers (Nick Apollonio, David Dodson, Sara Grey, Dave MacLurg, Riki Schneyer, George Stephens, Bob Stuart, Dick Swain, Andy Wallace and Kathy Westra) and some special invited guests, including Peter and Audi Souza from the Gloucester-based schooner Adventure, once captained by Rockland’s own Capt. Jim Sharp.

Doors open at 7 p.m. Admission is $15 (cash or checks only, please) at the door, with no reservations needed. Plenty of free parking is available at the museum. Bring your friends and bring your voices to welcome fall with rousing maritime choruses in good company. For more information, visit

The Sail, Power, and Steam Museum is a tax-exempt, 501 (c)(3) educational organization founded and maintained by Capt. Jim Sharp and his wife  Meg.
