Peter Kasin 'New' Sea Songs & Shanties & Nautical Songs (169* d) RE: 'New' Sea Songs & Shanties & Nautical Songs 27 Feb 10

Richard Grainger's Whitby Whaler has been mentioned. My favorite of his is Scarborough Fisherman. It's a beautiful melding of music and lyrics. George Vancouver, and The Endeavor Shanty are also fine songs of his, just to mention a few.

Cindy Kallet composes many maritime oriented songs, and she a has a captivating voice. Her debut album, Working On Wings To Fly, is classic. These aren't chanteys, but modern songs of coastal communities. Her opening song on that cd, Nantucket Sound, had for me the same effect as when I first heard Grainger's Scarborough Fisherman: I was hooked, and I will never forget the first time I heard them.
