Thread Name: Sea Ballads
Subject: RE: Sea Ballads
Check out the repertoire of English singers like Walter Pardon and Sam Larner for sea ballads! Have a look in the Greig Duncan Folk Song Collection (Scottish) which has a whole section of sea songs and ballads. Some titles off the top of my head of ballads/songs with a sea theme...

The Golden Vanity
Henry Martin
William Taylor
The Bold Princess Royal
The Loss of the Rammillies
The Handsome Cabin Boy
Edmund in the Lowlands Low
Lowlands
Sweet William (father build me a boat)

etc etc etc
