Tom Goux in Concert: An Evening of the Songs and Poetry of the Yankee Mariner @ New Bedford Fishing Heritage Center | New Bedford | Massachusetts | United States

Join us for a fun evening of song and poetry with local favorite Tom Goux!

For over four decades, Tom Goux has been collecting and performing the chanteys, ballads and ditties of the New England seafarer. He brings to life the salty sentiments of deep-water mariners, intrepid whalermen and coastal fisherfolk.

Accompanied by concertina, guitar, Hawaiian guitar and ukulele, his selections span three centuries of music and verse commemorating the American maritime epoch. As leader of the Rum Soaked Crooks, Tom is well known to festival audiences throughout the region, and is the founding director of the 35-voice New Bedford Harbor Sea Chantey Chorus, now in its 17th season.

Tickets are $12/members $15/non-members. On sale at the Center, on-line, or at the door. Doors open at 6:30.
