Better to sing with the fishes than sleep with the fishes, and on Wednesday, August 7 that’s exactly what is in store at the Old Whaling Church in Edgartown.

Musician, folksinger, poet and photographer Mark Lovewell will be hosting an evening of sea shanties and stories to celebrate the release of With the Fishes, his new CD of seafaring songs and tales of the sea.

The event will also feature several guest artists, including Cynthia Riggs, Janet Messineo, Tristan Israel, Matthew Stackpole and Sara Piazza.

The journey to lands far and near begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 for adults and $5 for teenagers and younger, available at the door.
