A taste of what’s to come for this summer’s Halifax Harbour Sea Music Festival takes place tonight with a free preview concert at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic at 1675 Lower Water St.

The free concert begins at 7:30 p.m. and will showcase sea songs and shanties by some of the artists who will be performing at the festival, which runs during the Labour Day weekend from Sept. 4-5 at the museum and harbour front area.

This will be the second year for the festival, which includes local, national and international talent. Complete details are available at halifaxharbourseamusicfest.webs.com.
