The Press release:
Outdoor Music Festival, Featuring Gordon Bok and Other Maritime Musicians, Scheduled for Saturday, August 2nd, at Portland Harbor Museum in South Portland

On Saturday, August 2nd, a maritime music festival will be held in South Portland at Portland Harbor Museum. The celebration will feature live performances by Gordon Bok, Castlebay, David Jones, David Coffin, Marc Bernier and many others. This free outdoor concert will be held from 10am-4pm on the grounds surrounding Portland Harbor Museum. It will bring internationally-known musicians to a stunning venue overlooking Portland Harbor at Spring Point. The result will be a spirited day of lively and energetic performances from artists who will bring to life New England's seafaring heritage through song.

More than twenty performers will be participating this year. Gordon Bok, known for his rich voice and fluid guitar work, will highlight the program. Bok grew up in Maine. He worked on vessels as a deckhand and mate, and in the process learned many folk tunes, ballads, stories, and sea songs.

The duo, Castlebay, have been performing along the eastern seaboard and in the UK for twenty years. Julia Lane is an award winning Celtic Harper and one of the world's foremost proponents of maritime music on the harp. Fred Gosbee is known for his historical and humorous ballads.

Kendall Morse will also take part. Kendall is well known as a Maine humorist and folk singer and also as part of the Morse Brothers bluegrass band, which also included his brothers, Erlon and Les. He has issued three CDs, Lights Along the Shore, Seagulls and Summer People, and Beginner's Luck.

Admission to the festival is free, although donations to both the museum and the performers will be appreciated. In the event of rain, the festival will be held at South Portland High School.

Portland Harbor Museum celebrates the community's maritime past and present through exhibits, lectures, harbor excursions, and programs, such as this Maritime Music Festival. The museum engages young people by offering free admission, classroom visits, teacher lesson plans, and museum tours. For more information, please visit the museum's website at www.portlandharbormuseum.org

An addition to Jacqui's comments:

I did not feel it was right to ask individual performers and especially the Portsmouth Festival performers to appear at the Portland event both because of the money issue and the "hijacking" aspect.

There were no invitations sent other than the thread on Mudcat (God bless Max). Hopefully, this is the first of an annual event. Next year there will be some money and some experience, maybe even two days.

I am genuinely thrilled at the response. Needless to say the museum is thrilled. It is a small museum with brilliant exhibits that go unnoticed by most. I volunteer when I can in the gift shop because the view of Casco Bay is stunning. I love it there.

So, we will all have an amazing day of wonderful music and stories. The museum will be open for free so the public can get an introduction to its exhibits. Next year, when there is cash, this year's performers will be invited back and we will see where we are going.

My hope is that this will be seen as a sister festival to Portsmouth and both groups will benefit. But for now we have to get through August 2.

Note to Marc: Arriving drunk is OK just don't carry an open bottle.

Just a little aside here.

This is the first time this event will have taken place and no money has been available to pay performers. Mary put this thread on the 'Cat in the hopes of attracting those of our friends who just like to make music to come for the day and have fun. She has been astounded at the number of performers who have ASKED to be included, even knowing that the only reward that they will get is the joy of making music with other like minded souls.

It was felt that it would be unfair to ask any performer to take part, giving up most of a summer weekend when they could be making a living, to come and play for free. Now we have an unexpected abundance of performers and a very tight schedule, which we are still having to tweek to make sure that we can get finished by 4.00pm, as there is a wedding taking place a bit later and the whole site needs to be cleared for that.

If, as looks likely, this event is a real success, there is a very strong possibility that it will be repeated next year and, maybe, even enlarged. Right now we are taking baby steps and trying not to get too ambitious so that we can get it going well enough to warrant a repeat.

Our apologies go out to anyone who felt that they should have been included - I trust that the above explains why.

I can't actually get to their site through any of the normal means, which suggests that either they're busy updating it and took it off-line briefly or that their web provider is having a problem. As a rule, either of those should be resolved in a few hours, after which either jacqui's or link or www.portlandharbormuseum.org to get you to the main site should work.
