Thread Name: Review: Chanteyranger and Radriano's new CD
Subject: RE: Review: Boldly from Westward, Songs of the Sea
By the way, the correct title is "Boldly from the Westward"

And just to clarify things, Dick Holdstock, Shay Black, and Denis Franklin form our chorus for four of the shanties; Richard Mandel provides guitar accompaniment for the jig set; and Riggy Rackin plays concertina on two of the sea songs.

For those of you who have not figured it out already, Peter Kasin is chanteyranger - you can also PM him for details.

Our new website ( is still under construction but once it's up and running you'll be able to download detailed liner notes with lyrics there for "Boldly from the Westward."
