About the Event

Join the Yarmouth County Historical Society for a musical celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Yarmouth Shantymen. Forty years ago, Eric Ruff was the Curator at the Yarmouth County Museum. He had promised the society that he would do a program on Sea Shanties - the work songs of sailors on sailing ships. He talked a group of his friends into helping him with the program and the Yarmouth Shantymen were born. Forty years (and four CDs) later, they are still sharing songs of the sea, and it all started at the Yarmouth County Museum. Come enjoy this throw-back to that original program of March 1984 and hear some of the additional songs that have been added to the repertoire. The program will be in-person only at the Museum.

Free event!
