Lighter Minstrel songs and chanties (44) RE: Minstrel songs and chanties 21 Jan 21

That's a great site, Steve, and you've dug out a couple of important items.

But in my experience, minstrel songs with a direct link to chanteys (or I should say, "existing chantey texts") are rare.

Which is not to say that various lyrics could have been and probably were ad-libbed into chantey singing, or that the minstrel stage wasn't a significant source of pop music.
