So I'm looking for a great sea shanty singer/historian for a maritime lecture series that I'm trying to put together in Lowestoft, Suffolk (England). Does anyone by chance know where I could start tracking one down? Thank you kindly!

You might consider Louis Killen now that he's back in the UK.

His website is here.

Good luck -- Tom

Or Jim Mageean. Who has given many workshops and is very informative as well as being able to put the information across. He's from the Newcastle upon Tyne area I'm sure some one here will know how to contact him.
He is in my opinion the best you can get.

I went to a shanty/seasong workshop in Lewes last year run by Johnny Collins and Graeme Knights who also does the maritime sessions at Whitby with Jim. Both Johnny and Graeme can be found in a google search.

I know Louis, and he would be outstanding. If he or Jim Mageean are not available, there's Bob Walser in the U.S. (if you can afford to import). He is one of the oustanding scholars of sea music, and a singer/performer of it. PM me if you'd like his email address. He lived in England for several years before returning to the U.S.

Patrick - if you leave a contact number or email address I'd be more than willing to give you lots of contacts for maritime singers and lecturers - I have dozens and dozens of them! Many of the ones mentioned above plus lots more.
