GUEST,Observer Should women sing chanties (203* d) RE: Should women sing chanties 24 Apr 19


Why not? Very few are actually sung now as Shanties/Chanties, they have just become "songs" to be performed as desired by the artist - little or no connection to what the songs were ever actually about. I was fortunate enough to listen to someone employed as a Shantyman on a sail training ship lead a shanty on a Square-rigger with the watch on deck working to it. It put the thing in context.
