Wilson Museum Offers Musical Sea Fare

Castine -

CASTINE, Maine — Stephen and Susan Sanfilippo will present a musical banquet of songs of seafood and strong drink at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 15, in the main hall at the Wilson Museum, 120 Perkins Street in Castine. The duet will be accompanied on guitar, 5-string banjo, and Anglo concertina singing the praises of mussels, clams, eel, fish chowder, and ale as well as the less than praiseworthy taste of chicken-on-a-raft, pisco and whiskey. Besides whetting the audience‚Äôs appetite, the songs have great choruses for all to join in.

Stephen Sanfilippo holds a Ph.D. in History and is a retired secondary and undergraduate history teacher. Susan Sanfilippo is a retired museum education director. Susan and Stephen have been researching and performing traditional songs of the maritime trades since the mid-1970s. They divide their time between Southold, New York and Pembroke, Maine.
