Join the Seaport Museum and special guests Bonnie Milner of The Johnson Girls and sailor Fern Hoffman, captain and chief mate of traditional sailing vessels (and old time fiddler) to discuss the traditional roles of women at sea, the roles of women in the tall ship industry today, the treatment of women in traditional maritime music, and the role of women singing songs traditionally sung by men. The presentation will include songs, with lyrics provided so guests can sing along from home, and a brief Q&A will follow the conversation.
