Board the World’s Largest Viking Longship at
Mystic Seaport this Summer

Draken Harald Hårfagre Will Host Guided Tours June 30-September 4

Mystic, Conn. (May 31, 2017) — Mystic Seaport and the crew of the Viking longship Draken Harald Hårfagre announced today the ship will be open for public tours in Mystic this summer beginning June 30.

The reconstructed longship sailed across the Atlantic Ocean in 2016 to explore and relive one of the most mythological sea voyages: the first transatlantic crossing and the Viking discovery of the New World, more than 1,000 years ago. After crossing the Atlantic, the ship sailed throughout the Great Lakes, down the Erie Canal to New York City, and concluded its voyage at Mystic Seaport where it spent the winter. At each stop along the way, thousands turned out to see this magnificent example of ancient seafaring.

“We are thrilled to partner with one of the leading maritime museums in the U.S.,” said Emanuel Persson, Draken Harald Hårfagre CEO and Expedition Director. "It is an honor to share our ship and story of the Vikings with visitors of Mystic Seaport as we prepare for the next leg of the ship’s American expedition and tour of the U.S. East Coast in 2018."

“The Viking story and their voyages across the Atlantic are part of our shared maritime experience, and we are very excited to be able to partner with the Draken Harald Hårfagre, so they can tell that story firsthand at Mystic Seaport. There is no substitute for actually walking the deck of a ship to understand what it takes to venture across an ocean,” said Steve White, president of Mystic Seaport.

Guided deck tours will be available Tuesday and Thursday1-5 p.m., and Friday-Sunday10 a.m.-5 p.m. The last tour each day is at 4:30 p.m. The ship will be closed Mondays and Wednesdays. Tours will run every 30 minutes and will cost $6 per person (Children age 3 and younger are free). Tickets will be available at the ship and online at www.drakenshop.com . The ticket is in addition to regular admission to Mystic Seaport. 

Draken Harald Hårfagre is a clinker-built Viking longship launched in 2012. She is not a replica of a known ship, but is a reconstruction of what the Norse Sagas refer to as a “Great Ship” based on historic documents, archeological findings, and Norwegian boatbuilding traditions. She is the world’s largest Viking ship sailing in modern times. Draken Harald Hårfagre is an open wooden ship, 115-foot long (35 meters) with a beam of 26 feet (8 meters) and a mast height of 79 feet (24 meters). It carries one large, square sail, which has driven the vessel to a speed of 14 knots. The ship can be rowed by one hundred oarsmen and is equipped with 25 pairs of oars—each oar powered by two crew members. During its transatlantic Expedition America 2016, Draken Harald Hårfagre carried a crew of 32 men and women.

The ship will remain at Mystic Seaport until spring 2018, when the crew plans a tour of the U.S. East Coast. The tours will run through September 4, 2017.

For more information, please visit www.mysticseaport.org/Draken or www.drakenexpeditionamerica.com. Tickets will be available for purchase online at www.drakenshop.com.

Mystic Seaport to Host 38th Annual Sea Music Festival June 8-11

Performers from Around the World Gather to Celebrate Music of the Sea

 

Mystic, Conn. (May 19, 2017) —Musicians from around the world will come to Mystic Seaport to celebrate the musical traditions of the Golden Age of Sail at the 38th annual Sea Music Festival, Thursday through Sunday, June 8-11. The Festival is the premier sea music event in North America.

This year’s roster includes musicians from Great Britain, France, and Australia, along with singers from across the United States. The weekend’s festivities include daytime and evening concerts, special performances for children, instructional workshops, a scholars’ symposium, and a unique opportunity to witness sea music at work aboard the Museum’s historic vessels.

More than 15 individuals and groups will be featured at the Festival representing the gamut of traditional and contemporary sea music. The French group Nordet will perform their blend of a cappella working songs with masterful modern compositions. The Sydney-based group Roaring Forties is renowned for the powerful impact they make singing unaccompanied folk songs. Rhode Island’s Vox Hunters will present an exciting repertoire of driving dance tunes blended with an unorthodox collection of interesting songs. 

Visitors may also take in performances from The Chanteens, Larry Kaplan, Jerry Bryant, Atwater/Donnelly, Sparky and Rhonda Rucker, Dick Swain, Tom Lewis, The Johnson Girls, and the Mystic Seaport Chantey Staff, including Geoff Kaufman, Craig Edwards, Denise Kegler, and Don Sineti.

New to the lineup this year is Anayis “AJ” Wright, a traditional folk musician who came to sea music through the Chantey Skills class at the Williams-Mystic undergraduate program at the Museum. She performs as a solo vocalist, and plays cello and concertina.

All workshops and daytime concerts in the Festival are included in regular Mystic Seaport admission. Special tickets are required for evening concerts and can be purchased online, in person at the Museum’s entrances, or by calling 860.572.0711. Weekend passes are also available. College students will be admitted into the Festival for the youth rate upon presentation of a current student ID.

As part of the Festival, Mystic Seaport will also host the annual Music of the Sea Symposium Friday and Saturday, June 9-10. The Symposium, co-sponsored by Mystic Seaport, Williams College, the Williams-Mystic Program, and the University of Connecticut at Avery Point, features presentations of themed papers by some of the country’s leading maritime music scholars and explores subjects from history and folklore, to literature and ethnomusicology, along with many other related topics.
