Subject: September Press Room (NH Shanty Sing
From: Bat Goddess
Date: 12 Sep 16 - 03:51 PM

September Sea Music Month around here starts with our monthly shanty, forebitter and fo'c's'le ballad session this Saturday, September 17th, from 3:30 to 7:30 PM at The Press Room on Daniel Street in Portsmouth, NH.

This will be a great opportunity to warm up for the 17th Annual Portsmouth Maritime Folk Festival which will be the last weekend of the month, September 24th & 25th. More info here including the schedule for this year's festival -- 2016 PMFF

Nick Noble on WICN in Worcester is devoting most of this Thursday's (September 15th) "The Folk Revival" show to a live session (or as close to a session as we can recreate in the studio) promoting the PMFF. The show is from 7:00 - 11:00 PM Eastern time and can be listened to online by going to -- "The Folk Revival" and click on "Listen Live Online" and choose MP3 or iTunes.

Hope we see you there, both at Saturday's shanty sing and at the festival!

Linn

Unfortunately, I have an appointment that will end about when the session is starting, but I'm not going to be up to going. (I'm graduating to color this time.)

Last night on Nick Noble's "The Folk Revival" radio show on WICN in Worcester, we sang loud enough to be heard in Maine, Kentucky, Colorado, Texas, California, Australia and (I think) China. Another really great live show to promote the Portsmouth Maritime Folk Festival and songs of the sea. We had a fantastic time with a group of great performers not only from our Press Room sessions but from other spots in New Hampshire plus local Worcester and other Massachusetts musicians.

This Saturday is another warmup for the festival.

See you then!

As usual, a rather nice session.

The crew was me (Bat Goddess, aka Linn Schulz), Ranger1, Amy, Dianne Lavoie, Charlie Ipcar (Charley Noble), Alan Eaton (after Mudhook's gig at the USS Albacore), Don Hale, Emery Hutchins, Pete Hale (also in town because of the gig on the USS Albacore; had to leave early to work on his porch restoration -- an excused early departure), Bruce MacIntyre, Justine Donovan, Bill Lehrman and Carol Pierson, Gail Finn with her mother, Rita Pomerleau, Phyllis, Carol Coronis, and Jeff Warner. Dave, the reenactor from Kennebunkport, made an appearance (in period garb) to say hi and say he'll be at the festival next week, but he didn't have time for a song.

Linn-

Excellent work!

With regard to "Jolly Roving Tar," while I was pointing out its origins as a song in the play Old Lavender, produced in 1885, what I sang was a version that has been heavily folk-processed and very close to how most of us now sing the song. The song has been greatly improved from its original lyrics.

And I'd like to point out that it wasn't Jeff who requested to sing several songs back to back -- it was a request TO Jeff...from Dianne (I think) and the rest of us. And Jeff graciously complied.

It's always a treat to have Jeff at the session. He just got back from South Carolina -- seems he's always off performing somewhere.
