Subject: RE: Working Waterfront Fest/New Bedford MA U
A band I was in back in 1976 played in NB for a bicentennial celebration. It's a great town, and the historic district is a must-see if you're into the history of sailing. The church mentioned in "Moby Dick" and recreated in the movie (the Gregory Peck version), is still there and open to the public. The walls are filled with stone plaques dedicated to men lost at sea, and there's also the famous ship pulpit. And you can get linguisa, a Portuguese sausage in the restaurants.
