Southeastern Connecticut's Mystic Seaport will host the Barry Finn Memorial Chantey Blast and Pub Sing from 1-5 p.m. Saturday.

Attendees are invited to sing along as Mystic Seaport chanteymen share maritime ballads, chanteys and songs of the sea. Admission is free, but donations are welcome. The event seeks to raise support for the museum's upcoming Sea Music Festival, while also pay tribute to Barry Finn, a renowned New England chanteyman and former Sea Music Festival performer who passed away last year.

For information, call (860) 572-5302, Ext. 5037.

Additionally, Mystic Seaport is seeking paper proposals to be presented at the Music of the Sea Symposium, to be held June 11-12, during the Sea Music Festival. The submission deadline is February 28.
