Voices of the Many
Series | Virtual | Free
Join us for a new webinar series where we will explore the lives of diverse groups of sailors today and in history through conversations with singers, sailors, historians, and more. During the Age of Sail, ships were made up of crew members from all over the world, and sailors’ songs have reflected that diversity. Among the stories included will be those of sailors of African descent who played a key role in the Underground Railroad, women sailors who still face barriers in their trade, and queer sailors whose lives have only recently been treated respectfully in musical compositions. Each webinar will tackle
traditional repertoire while considering the challenges of both song origin and presentation in modern times.
