Sea Shanty Session

Sea Shanty Session1.jpg

This Sunday is special!  Come see the premiere of the documentary, Safe at Snug Harbor.  This short film profiles a colorful group of amateur and professional musicians who are passionate about keeping historic sea shanties and maritime folk songs alive through monthly community sings. These “hootenannies” on Staten Island invite people of all ages and abilities to join their voices together in harmonic camaraderie. In this intimate look at a rare slice of New York culture, you'll hear how these songs were integral to the building of the city, and what it means to the group to preserve this almost forgotten musical tradition.

Led by the Folk Music Society of New York, Sea Shanty Sessions is really gaining in popularity and offers a great opportunity to experience authentic, time-honored maritime songs in an appropriately historic setting. The sessions are free and family friendly, and you are encouraged to sing along if the mood strikes you! If you can't make it this weekend, we hold a session on the third Sunday of every month.

Avon Faire Holiday Concert

IMG_2450.JPG

The Noble Maritime Collection is delighted to host a holiday concert by Avon Faire, a female singing group from New York City featuring traditional folk songs in three-part harmony from Celtic regions and the UK. Costumed in dress from medieval times, the ladies will lead the audience in a sing-a-long of holiday favorites like Deck the Halls, as well as perform sea shanties like South Australia, and songs from their debut album Riddles and Love Songs.

Take a step back in time to the days of candlelight and mulled cider, a festive treat for the whole family to enjoy together.

Riddles and Love Songs was released in 2016 and the group completed their second tour of England this summer. A European tour is in the works for the summer of 2018. Tim Carroll of FolkWords UK says, “Listening to these perfectly balanced voices adds an entrancing level of attraction.”

Members of the group include Andriette Redmann, Kath Green, Anna Marie Spallina, and John Rokosny .

Admission $10 in advance, $15 at the door
Doors open at 6:30 PM

The Noble Maritime Collection's annual art auction is a Staten Island tradition. Year in and year out, work on the auction block—all of which is donated by artists and art collectors—comprises an exceptional array of artistic mastery.  The 29th Annual John A. Noble Art Auction will be held on Friday, November 10, 2017.  The event begins with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres—a time to peruse the art on the block, meet the artists, and compare notes with other guests while dining on exceptional cuisine by the museum's great caterer, Catering by Framboise.  Chris Olert will be our witty master of ceremonies, and our expert auctioneer Damon Urban will offer commentary about each piece. Whether you leave with a work of art or not, you'll help support a great cause and encourage the work of fine contemporary artists and craftspeople.
