Peter Souza and Three Sheets to the Wind – Music on Meetinghouse Green Concert to Benefit Schooner Adventure
Friday, July 22 6:00 – 8:30 Corner Church & Middle St., Gloucester
Three Sheets to the Wind is an old sailing term and refers to a ship whose sheets (lines) have come loose, causing the sails to flap uncontrolled and the ship to sh…udder and roll (like a staggering drunk) and meander at the mercy of the elements.
Three Sheets to the Wind is also a Gloucester chantey/sea music group. Many of the crew have years of established song and sea history to offer and create a perfect storm of song and good cheer. Their vocals, harmonies and instrument skills are phenomenal, and they have a great time performing and drawing the audience into the fun. https://www.facebook.com/threesheetstothewindgloucesterma/
This is concert three in a series of nine free outdoor concerts presented by the Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation. The family-friendly concert begins at 6 pm. Bring a picnic, folding chairs or blankets. In case of rain, the event will take place inside the Meetinghouse (no food or drink permitted inside.)
The public will be invited to make free-will donations and all collected monies will go to the Schooner Adventure.
The Gloucester Adventure, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit maritime historic preservation and educational organization. We are the stewards of the 1926 dory-fishing Schooner Adventure. Our mission begins with restoration and preservation in perpetuity of the National Historic Landmark Schooner Adventure, one of the last surviving Grand Banks dory-fishing schooners. The Schooner Adventure is a national treasure that has resumed active sailing as an icon of the American fisheries and as a floating classroom for maritime history and environmental education programs. The Schooner will be operated at sea, primarily along the New England coast, as a living monument to Massachusetts’ fishing heritage. As such, the Schooner Adventure is important not only to Gloucester, but also to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and all America. http://schooner-adventure.org/
