This IS Women’s Work: Maritime Lives
April 22 @ 7:00 pmFree
The Seaport Museum’s Sea Songs and Sea Lives: Voices of the Many series continues as we explore the roles of diverse sailors and their treatment in traditional maritime songs. Join tugboat captain Ann Loeding and Harbor School graduate/SUNY Maritime student Ashley Cruz, along with chantey singer Bonnie Milner of the Johnson Girls, to discuss the roles of women in modern maritime careers and the role of women in singing sea songs; ultimately, all that matters is how good you are at your job. We will also discuss the function of music and traditional culture on board, yesterday and today. A brief Q&A will follow the conversation.
