Songs of the sea and those who sail upon it have become an increasingly popular part of Tall Ship Celebration. Each festival, we seek out the most talented shanty musicians in the world and invite them to perform for you as part of our maritime festival. Sponsorship supports the appearance of participating musicians especially those traveling from around the world to visit the Great Lakes Bay Region.
