BB Short Sharp Shanties on tour! (16) Short Sharp Shanties on tour! 09 Sep 12


You may be aware from articles in the folk press and CD reviews of the Short Sharp Shanties project, which is, as one person said, "in my opinion the most significant recording of sea shanties ever produced". An accolade indeed!

Now some of those involved in the recordings are taking the songs on tour only seven dates, so if you can get there, don't miss out! And please let as many of your friends know as possible!

So S&A Projects and WildGoose Records present:
JEFF WARNER, JACKIE OATES, KEITH KENDRICK, DOUG BAILEY AND TOM & BARBARA BROWN
An extraordinary international crew of professional singers and musicians, coming together to perform the songs of one of England's most famous shantymen. For fifty years John Short of Watchet sailed all over the world these are his work songs: songs that told a ribald tale, gave a commentary on the work in hand, or parodied a current popular song. These are the songs that kept the crews heaving and hauling with a will throughout the great days of sail.

IF YOU THINK ALL SEA-SONG GROUPS ARE THE SAME THINK AGAIN!
"Top class singing and playing throughout."
"A massive variety of arrangement and delivery."
"Rattling good performances."
"A fine piece of work."
"Sometimes reflective sometimes more wild."
"As bracing as a force six out of Finisterre."
