Maritime Music

NWS Chantey Sing
Northwest Seaport’s music program strives to carry on the rich traditions of nautical music, and bring to life diverse historical and contemporary maritime work songs and forebitters.

Attend a NWS Monthly Chantey Sing to connect with these maritime folk traditions.


David Kessler leads this traditional chantey at the November 11, 2016 NW Seaport Chantey Sing in Seattle, WA.
