Berklee College of Music and the Boston Harbor Islands National Park have joined forces for the second year to bring summer sightseers free musical entertainment throughout the season. On select Saturdays throughout June, July, and August, visitors to historic Fort Warren will be captivated by the sounds of Berklee's notable up-and-comers playing original jazz, bluegrass, soul/pop, indie rock, and more while taking in the sights of Georges Island.

Take No Prisoners: Berklee at Fort Warren is free to the public. Each concert features three Berklee artists performing back-to-back, so all you'll need is a ferry ticket for an entire afternoon of music under the sun.

Long Wharf North is easily accessible from the New England Aquarium MBTA stop on the Blue Line and from the Haymarket MBTA stop on the Orange and Green lines. On all performance dates, ferries depart Long Wharf North every half-hour from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. For the full ferry schedule and the 2010 Boston Harbor Island brochure, please visit bostonharborislands.org.
