Join the National Park service for the finale of the 26th annual Sea Music Concert Series, featuring noted singers and instrumentalists Holdstock and Macleod. With city lights twinkling in the background, the 1886 historic sailing ship Balclutha provides a unique venue to experience the authentic music of seafarers.
Dick Holdstock and Allan Macleod are still enthusiastically performing together after 30 years. They perform authentic renditions of the songs of their homelands: England and Scotland. Captivating audiences from coast to coast, they trade off on playing guitar and mandolin, as well as sing a cappella. Hearing their music is a memorable event and an extraordinary glimpse into a not-so-distant maritime past, as they reveal new insights into history and old customs through their songs.
San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park is located at the west end of Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco. The park includes a magnificent fleet of historic ships, Visitor Center, Maritime Museum, Maritime Research Center, and Aquatic Park Historic District.
