Join us for a unique and intimate musical experience, as the sounds of strings and voices mingle and echo from bow to stern and across the harbor, as the sun sets and the stars rise.

Beyond being America’s oldest seaport, Adventure’s home port of Gloucester, MA is also a vibrant artistic community that has nurtured and inspired renowned visual artists, poets, and musicians throughout the centuries. Schooner Serenade unites Gloucester’s unique cultural history with Adventure’s crucial mission to educate on maritime, cultural, and environmental issues and to restore and preserve her for future generations love of the sea. Held aboard Adventure while she is docked in her historic home port, Schooner Serenade features talented singer/songwriters from Cape Ann and beyond whose original music and live performances have earned them local, regional, and international acclaim.
A National Historic Landmark, the Schooner Adventure is among the last surviving Grand Banks dory-fishing schooners, the last of the “Gloucestermen”. An icon of the American fisheries and a floating classroom for maritime history and environmental education, Adventure is an invaluable, living monument to our fishing and maritime heritage, both in Massachusetts and America as a whole.
Adventure has temporarily moved from her berth on Harbor Loop. She is now docked at the Jodrey State Fish Pier at the end of Parker Street, Gloucester. Boarding from the State Fish Pier is not allowed at this time.
Attendees will need to use the Harbormaster’s launch located at 19 Harbor Loop at the end of Solomon Jacob Park, between the Harbormaster office and the Coast Guard Station. The launch will transport attendees from Harbor Loop to the State Fish Pier where Adventure is docked. Attendees should plan to arrive at the Harbormaster’s launch at 7 PM for transport to the State Fish Pier. We will make two runs between 7 and 7:20 PM. If you miss one of these shuttles you may call the launch operator at 978-729-0155 to request transport. Parking is available along Harbor Loop or in the city lot at the corner of Harbor Loop and Rogers Street. We apologize for any inconvenience, but we’re all looking forward to a cleaner, safer Gloucester Harbor when the project is complete in May of 2017!

Combining a background in jazz with folk Americana, blues, and an indie edge, Cape Ann singer/songwriter Marina Evans’ sound is all her own. Marina’s strong, sultry vocals and the raw grit of her husband, producer, and musical partner Bernardo Baglioni’s slide guitar bring her unusual melodies and lyrics to life. Having released 3 original EPs and a full length album in recent years – two of which were written and recorded abroad in Bernardo’s native Italy – the pair has toured across the U.S. and internationally. Marina’s passionate live performance has earned her two consecutive nominations for Female Performer of the Year at the New England Music Awards, as well as opening sets for such folk legends as Judy Collins, Jonathan Edwards, and Loudon Wainwright III. Debuting brand new material from Marina’s forthcoming album fittingly entitled Tide and Stars — this dynamic duo is not to be missed. Learn more at marinaevansmusic.com.
