Step into a Fisherman’s Boots

The Working Waterfront Festival in New Bedford, MA is two things, at the same time: it’s a moment when the commercial fishing industry shares its stories, secrets and skills with visitors, both local and tourist alike.  But it’s also a time for those fishermen to get together, as a community of their own.  I’m working with the Festival this year to help celebrate their 10th year in existence — a longevity that is hard won, a testament to the real love of the festival that all participants share.  I spoke with the Director of the festival, folklorist Laura Orleans, about what the festival means to her:

Like what you hear?  Keep the festival going strong, and join our community, by giving to our Indiegogo campaign.
