Saturday, September 16: TOM KASTLE
Kastle has performed throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe and New Zealand, weaving traditional and original songs into performances that feature his powerful voice and strong accompaniment on guitar and concertina. His love of maritime lore and song led him to become a tall ships sailor (captaining sailing ships on the Great Lakes) and a co-director of the Chicago Maritime Festival.
Saturday, October 21: DIANA GAMEROS AND MARIA JOSE MONTIJO
The duo sings of the sea, ships,love, and life drawn from folkloric and contemporary music traditions of Latin America and the Caribbean.
Saturday, November 11: PENNY OPRY
Drawing from maritime folk tradition, tin pan alley, and old-time drinking songs, the duo of Joan Wilson Rueter and Rosie Steffy make use of a suitcase drum kit and an antique button accordion as a backdrop for their tasty blend of sweet yet salty vocal harmonies.
 

Ongoing exhibits

Maritime Arts - At Sea & Ashore
With rope, wood, a brush and even a camera, sailors and artisans used their skills to transform maritime experiences into beautiful and enduring forms. Maritime Museum lobby exhibits include remarkable examples of work from the sailors' trade. At the Maritime Museum, 900 Beach St.


The park has a variety of ongoing exhibits that focus on the Asian American experience.

Look for the Grace Quan at the small boat dock on Hyde Street Pier, an example of a small craft that was used by Chinese immigrants to catch shrimp in San Francisco Bay.

Aboard the ship Balclutha, the "Chinatown" exhibit below deck provides an immersive experience into the living quarters of those who sailed to the Alaskan canneries.

At the park Visitor Center, 499 Jefferson Street, at Hyde Street, exhibits bring to life stories of 19th century Chinese immigration.
