GUEST,Dave MacKenzie Shanties in Liverpool 08 (13) RE: Shanties in Liverpool 08 09 Aug 08

Managed to get to some of the events.

The session (and beer) at the Baltic Fleet on Friday was good as ever though I spent most of my time outside listening to Les Souilles de Fond de Cale who started their own session and were in no hurry to stop.

The main festival suffered from the venues being to far apart, and crowd control being very much in evidence, but I did manage to catch most of Qftry's set. Yes folks, it's true - there are Polish words without vowels, though I think they pronounced it something like coof-tree. I'd definitely give them another listen, though because of the logistics of Wellington Dock, I wasn't able to get my hands on one of the CDs they said they had with them, and I haven't seen it on any of usual internet sources yet. I gave up after that, and looked at the ships.

I haven't managed to find out anything about future years yet, but hopefully we'll be back to the old format so that I can to hear everybody I want to.
