Bupkes Barry Finn Memorial Chantey Blast - 9 Jan 2010 (102* d) RE: Barry Finn Memorial Chantey Blast - 9 Jan 2010 11 Jan 10


I'd also like to especially thank Heather Wood for assuming the role of a kind of moderator, and I know that Barry's family also really appreciated her doing that. This was my first visit to Mystic Seaport. I gather that it's not traditional for anyone to "run" such a chantey blast the way she did, and I even heard some negative grumbling. But in my opinion, when a huge group includes a mix of old salts and newcomers, and some maybe too eager to contribute while others are hesitant and shy, it can be cacophonous to just let people try to jump in anarchically. I thought her short introductions and gatekeeping made it a smooth and lovely event.

If anyone hears of YouTube videos or other photos of this event, please let us know here.

I look forward to coming down from Portsmouth again, and I'll even sing something if I don't let myself pick up the camera for too long!
