Subject: RE: Jan. Shanty Session @the Press Room (NH)
Evidently there are no other survivors from this session except for me. Odd, there were about 30 people there, most of whom were leading songs. Maybe they're still singing.
I'm too fried after my 90 mile drive back home to do my usual summary. I did stay an extra hour having dinner with Al and Barbara Cuenin from Long Island, NY. We have lots of fun comparing notes on who is doing what.

Let's see I think I led four songs:

Bound Away by Bill Adams
Neptune's Daughter by Bob Watson
Sea Traders by Burt Franklin Jenness
Mid-Watches by Burt Franklin Jenness

There might have been a 5th song but I'm blanking on it.

Linn sounded great and led one of my favorite Great Lakes songs "Lovely Alice" by Sally Rogers.

Barry Finn's wife Justine was there and led a fine version of "My Name is Davy Loughlin (Never Seal)."

Cheerily,
Charley Noble
