Thread Name: Sea Ballads
Subject: RE: Sea Ballads
almost an embarrassment of riches here... go to http://gestsongs.com/ for the index os songs... and just wander through it

Heather sparling has the University of Cape Breton's disaster songs... ne section just on ship wrecks that she maintains http://disastersongs.ca/

recordings go back many decades but in the 1960s and 70s Judy Collins did Farewell to Tarwathie and there were many other artists who did albums that had sea ballads of all sorts...
