Subject: RE: Origins: Yangtse River Shanty
Good to hear that "Yangtse River Shanty" is still working its way though Yorkshire.

We'll see what we can do to spread it along the West Coast of England when we're rambling there from Bristol, Swansea, to Liverpool next October.

We certainly had fun hearing different versions of it at the recent Mystic Sea Music Festival. Barry Finn's version really takes the song back to what sounds like a traditional shanty. In fact I'm sure it won't be long before someone records it as TRAD!
