Appeared at NEFFA 2019:
|Chanteys: How Did They Work?||P Saturday April 13, 3:00pm to 3:50pm, High School Rm. 126 [show on grid]|
|We all know a great number of sailors' work songs, but how do we know how they were used at sea, and for what job? Chris will use his experience as one of the Chanteymen at Mystic Seaport Museum, and his experience sailing square-riggers, and Joy her decades singing and researching Maritime music, to demonstrate how this 19th century tool might have been used. Bring a chantey and we'll see if we can figure out the job.|
