Lesley N. Origins: Hoodah Day Shanty/Banks of the Sacramento (21) RE: INFO on Hoodah Day Shanty? 22 Oct 99


Shows what a name will do! I searched for hoodah, as I walked, and I searched for [banks of Sacramento] in the database - I should have known to cut it down when that didn't turn up anything!

Sure enough if I use Sacremento I have all sorts of neat stuff! How interesting that it is possibly on board ship earlier than Foster. Hugill has an interesting discussion of the controversy. So even though it's one of my least favorite songs I'll probably put it on my pages!

I even have the Mystic Shantymen tape (which I think is a real treasure - their tape made me realize working shanties weren't sung like the folksongs I know!)

Thanks as always!
