This Maritime Folk Festival Performance Might Just Give You The Chills

Every year in the picturesque town of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, there is a wonderful maritime folk festival. The idea is to present traditional American and British maritime folk music. Anyone who lives in New England or a historic maritime region can attest to the knowledge and singing of sea shanties when in a pub.

The Portsmouth Maritime Folk Festival seeks to capture some of this, and they often do so in spectacular fashion. It’s a celebration of history and is replete with talent from all over. It harkens back to the Age of Sail and gives you a taste of what a part of life was like back then for sailors. This incredible performance at the festival’s end involves the crowd and is truly spectacular. It may just give you chills.
