Hello fellow shanty singer

Naturally The Roaring Forties, with Danny Spooner & The Rocky River Bush Band - what a session - 6 Forties, 9 Rocky Rivers & Danny - & a huge audience raising the rafters. The only one not singing was the Sea Captain in his yellow sou'wester & wet weather gear, but he was made of papier mache! (spellcheck didn't like that, but the Oxford Dictionary did). I have pics so can send you some (maybe even get them scanned)

Another event was Three Score & Friends - Margaret's 60th birthday.

One of he themes for the National was Girt by Sea - lots more songs about the sea, whaling & other nautical stuff.

bye for now
I don't like this site it brought up some weird messages, but I love their music, I have 2 of their CDs & another made with Danish sea shanty singers
