Bat Goddess July Press Room [NH] Shanty Sing (20) RE: July Press Room [NH] Shanty Sing 16 Jul 17

I guess it turned into too nice a day. It was just Nick Noble and me for the first half hour. Then the Finns arrived -- Gail, Jim, Amanda, and grandma Doris. And Don Hale survived the traffic to Portsmouth. Sharon from Cornwall (originally) also joined us and Bill, Nick's non-singing friend. Oh, and Rita Pomerleau arrived during the last 45 minutes or so.

Erin and Molly kept us supplied with beer... New brews this time. Nick really enjoyed the "Bub Lite". I think I started with "Cut Off Schwartz"(schwarzbier) then gravitated to "Primetime Sunshine" because my prednisone-addled tastebuds were messing with me.

So, we sang --
1. Fathom the Bowl - Linn
2. Old Molasses Rum - Nick
3. Whiskey-O, Johnny-O - Linn
4. Báidín Fheilimí ('Feilimí's little boat') - Jim
5. The Eddystone Light - Nick
6. Twa Recruiting Sergeants - Amanda
7. Leaving of Liverpool - Amanda & Gail
8. Whale of a Tale - Nick
9. Nine Times a Night - Linn
10. Haul Away, Joe - Jim
11. Home, Dearie, Home - Linn
12. The Ferryman - Nick
13. Cornwall My Home - Gail & Sharon
14. The Water Is Wide - Gail
15. Capital Ship - Nick
16. Leave Her, Johnny [Danny Spooner's lyrics] - Don
17. Knickerbocker Line - Linn
18. High Barbary - Amanda
19. Bold Riley - Nick
20. Sail O Believe - Don
21. Maggie May - Linn
22. Sonny's Dream - Gail & Amanda
23. Bonnie Hieland Laddie - Jim
24. Skye Boat Song - Nick
25. Sloop John A [Les Barker] - Linn
26. Farewell to Nova Scotia - Amanda
27. Greenland Whale Fisheries - Don
28. Blow Ye Winds In the Morning - Nick
29. Rose of Allendale - Gail
30. Backside of Nantucket Point - Linn
31. The Blarney Stone - Rita
32. Outward Bound - Don
33. The Titanic (Husbands and Wives) - Nick
34. Shenandoah - Amanda
35. Cannery Shed - Linn
36. Grey Funnel Line - Rita
37. Jamestown Homeward Bound - Don
38. Calton Weaver - Nick
39. Farewell Shanty (Padstow Farewell) - Gail
40. Sailor's Prayer [Tom Lewis] - Linn
41. Three Score and Ten - Don
42. Shanty In Old Shanty Town [Jerry Bryant] - Linn
43. Seaman's Hymn - Don and the Company

As usual, let me know of any omissions or corrections. I've been awake since 2:30 this morning, so... (that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!)

Thanks, everyone, for coming!
