GUEST,Rose Sea Ballads (24) Sea Ballads 09 Jul 19


I am searching for ballads with a sea theme for a project. I would love to find love ballads involving the sea. Songs and stories of grief, worry, loneliness of women with husbands & lovers at sea....lost to the sea. Say wives with husbands who work jobs as fisherman..the worry of rough seas, storms and shipwrecks. Ballads of falling in love with mermaids/selkies/sea creature etc.
Themes with fishermen down on their luck with a poor fishing season.
Ballads of the mystery and beauty & yet the haunting sea.
For this project I am staying away from sea shanties & more interested in sea ballads.

Any leads would be so wonderful. Are there any great sea ballad collections, websites, links, CD's? I would love to hear from anyone you would like to share a favorite sea ballad.

Much thanks. I really appreciate any help.

Again thank you.
