meself Should women sing chanties (204* d) RE: Should women sing chanties 29 Apr 19

Oh, come on. While I do think Gibb has gone off-track a bit, he is clearly addressing the issue raised in the original post, which he did not write, and pointing out that in his mind much of the discussion has nothing to do with that issue.

I think what Gib has (uncharacteristically) missed is that other possibilities related to 'authenticity' have come up as analogies, rather than as part and parcel of the same issue. Furthermore, I feel he has gone a bit far with the issue of 'genre': until his post, it was clear that everyone who used the term 'chanty' in its various permutations was talking about 'sea-chanteys; i.e., work songs sung on board ships.
