Event Details

Voices of the Sea: 

The Poetry and Song of Maine's Fishermen and Those Who Work on the Water 

 

Salt water, it is well known, has always stimulated the imagination, and stirred the soul. The performers at Voices of the Sea, men and women who have gone down to the sea to make a living, will further demonstrate that passion through their unique and original poetry and song, capturing the spirit of Maine’s fishermen and those who work on the water. Imagery of a life working the sea will accompany the performances adding a stunning visual element to the evening’s activities.

 

March 15 - 7PM - 8:30PM                                                                                           At Gulf of Maine Research Institute, Portland

Camden-based folksinger Gordon Bok, who has been a mainstay of the folk music scene in Maine and internationally for many years will emcee the event and likely perform a few of his favorites. Joining Gordon will be Frank Gotwals a Stonington Maine lobstermen and musician, Islesford lobsterman Jack Merril who recently was invited to present at the Astoria FisherPoets Gathering (the original fishermen poets event), and Monhegan islander and poet Sally Woolf-Wade who's tender words gracefully conger images of clam diggers, fishermen, the sister ships of Wiscasset and life on the water, and other equally talented performance.

This event takes place at Gulf of Maine Research Institute located in Portland. Doors open at 6:30PM event begins at 7PM.
