Subject: RE: Shanties in Liverpool: May 2011
I went to the Baltic Fleet for a pie and a pint (excellent as usual) and was pleasantly surprised to be asked to give a couple of songs. As far as I could tell, Pete Hayselden (Shanty Jack) only had the singers who turned up to choose from, ie no pre-set list. If you had made yourself known to him as a singer, I'm sure you would have had your chance - as inded did our enthusiastic Swedish/ Norwegian (never did establish which!) friend who wasn't afraid to show his appreciation for an excellent range of music and songs. Sorry I can't get back for more.
