GUEST,Gibb Sahib sea shanties (110* d) RE: sea shanties 28 Jul 16


Thanks, Lighter. My mind must have blocked out those items. (Due to my bias! I pretty much hate that "Packet Ship" song!)

And I did make some good use of some of the non-English songs while sailing with an international crew recently. It strikes me that Hugill's later work is especially suited for the North/Western European world of sail training, "tall ships" races/festivals, and that whole scene, in which "chanties" and "sailors' songs" blur together like curry-ketchup as an accoutrement of the general "Yay! ships and sailing and striped shirts and stuff!" atmosphere.
