KAS Tune Req: Looking for a good sea chantey (14) RE: Tune Req: Looking for a good sea chanty 06 Nov 01


Sugar in the Hold is a cargo-loading chantey from the U.S. Gulf Coast. It mentions Mobile Bay and New Orleans. I don't immediately picture it in a chorale medley myself, but if one is looking for inspiration to experiment, William Pint and Felicia Dale recorded interesting arrangements of both Sugar in the Hold and Johnny Come Down to Hilo (mentioned by Snuffy above) with voice, acoustic/electric guitar, keyboards, and percussion on their album Round the Corner.

Cheers,

Ken
