Fundy Sea Shanty Festival
The Fundy Sea Shanty Festival in St. Martins took place over the weekend with great songs of the sailors and local food and beverages. And what an amazing weekend volunteer organizers have planned. I am so happy to support this event through the Department of Tourism, Heritage and Culture’s festivals and events program. St. Martins’ small harbour has a strong heritage of shipbuilding, known as the Jewel in the Crown for building unstoppable schooners that journeyed to every corner of the world. Sea shanties were the songs crews sang as they sailed.
