"Rails and Sails" - A Concert in the Boxcar


Join us for an afternoon of Traditional American Music from our Boxcar #759 When we speak of railroads on Long Island, we must speak of maritime history as well. From the LIRR’s initial ignorance toward the North and South Shores – everyone moved by ship in the early 1800’s anyway – to the Rail Road’s dependence on ships to transit their passengers to Boston via Long Island Sound, to the LIRR’s Navy of steam passenger ships, ferry boats, tugs and barges. Join us for “A Concert in the Boxcar” at Greenport RMLI on Sunday, June 18, 2023 at 2:00 PM. American Music Historian, Stephen Sanfilippo will offer us traditional music and stories from “Rails and Sails” and he promises a new song dedicated to history on the Long Island Rail Road.
