GUEST,kenny Should women sing chanties (203* d) RE: Should women sing chanties 23 Apr 19

"A lot of the songs composed by these singer song writer types, women and men, sound as if they were composed while they were sitting on the chanty".
A lot of them these days sound as though they're SINGING them "while sitting on the chanty".
Anyone can sing anything they want, as far as I am concerned.
There was a similar discussion years ago here in Aberdeen concerning women singing bothy ballads. Seems a bit academic now, since the major "Bothy Ballad" competition was won a few years ago by Shona Donaldson.
