Chantey Sing and Sail – September 9, 4pm

Embark on a musical journey through New York Harbor aboard the 1885 Schooner Pioneer, with the South Street Seaport Museum! This event offers a special sea-song sing-along, featuring historical songs that were used by old-time sailors to make their work more manageable.

As the Historical Register-listed vessel glides across the water, you’ll be treated to a round-robin of catchy rhythms, all set against the breathtaking backdrop of unfurled sails and iconic New York landmarks, including the Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of Liberty, Lower Manhattan’s architectural gems, Ellis Island, and more! This is a truly immersive experience that lets you soak in the essence of the city’s maritime history.

No matter your singing abilities, all are welcome to sign up and participate in this two-hour sail. Whether you’re a seasoned singer or simply a keen listener, you’ll have the chance to lead or request a traditional maritime work song or ballad.

Bring along your favorite beverage, meal, or snack to savor al fresco style on the deck, while surrounded by songs that have resonated along the waterways for centuries. And, if you’re feeling adventurous, you’ll even have the opportunity to help raise the sails and haul on lines, just like the sailors of old.

When: Saturday, September 9, at 4pm.

Where: Aboard the Pioneer, Pier 16, John Street, New York, NY. For more information about the Pioneer, please visit:
