Listen to the Music of the Islands

Today's island stories are about the music.

Hussey Sound was home to a navy fueling depot during World War II. It was a hub of activity during this time. There were as many as 50 - 60 ships riding at anchor in Hussey's waiting to refuel.

Long Island boats some of the best sandy beaches in Maine. One of them is Singing Beach on the ocean side. When the wind and tide are just right, a curious musical tone can be heard.

Chart metalworks show "The Islands of Casco Bay" at Hilltop Coffee Shop (99 Congress Street next to Rosemont Bakery continues through the end of the month.
