Portsmouth Maritime Folk Festival added an event.

The Traditional Friday Night Kick-off session is alive and well!!

We have found a home for the unofficial Friday Festival Kick-off session!! In place of the Press Room, this year we will assemble our mighty Maritime forces at the Moose Lounge, located downstairs at the Thirsty Moose Tap House, on 21 Congress Street, from 4:30 to 8:30p. There is a full bar, and we will be ordering food from the full restaurant menu.

Linn Schulz, leader of the Session has generously sent the following invitation to one and all:

"Bruce MacIntyre has found a venue for the unofficial PMFF kick-off which up until this year has been the regular Friday Press Room session. I hope our regular musicians, singers, and friends will come to the Thirsty Moose Taphouse (downstairs -- we'll have it to ourselves!) at 21 Congress Street for an open session that will include PMFF performers and festival goers who arrive on Friday for the weekend's maritime festivities.I'll be leading the session."

Should you find yourself in Portsmouth on the Friday eve of the Festival, we hope you will plan to join with us in marking the unofficial start of the 18th edition of the Festival as well as the 34th anniversary year of the Session. Let's raise our glasses together to celebrate these two grand traditions!!
