severed-head Shanties in Faversham, Kent, UK (4) RE: Shanties in Faversham, Kent, UK 22 Jul 17

Well, just got back from singing at Faversham Nautical Festival. Weather stayed dry most of the time, with just a couple of downpours towards the end. Nice audience and a friendly atmosphere, with lots of sailing ships moored in Faversham Creek.
The afternoon was spoiled, however, by the shocking news that the man who had organised all the entertainment (including us), Doug Wake, had died the previous day. We offer our sincere condolences to his family. Suddenly, shanty singing didn't seem so important.
R.I.P. Doug Wake.
