Hi, Barry -
All the best for YOUR gig today, as well. Yes, we sing the rowing song "Row, Michael, Row" at chantey volume. It's also on our new CD. I got it from a Georgia Sea Islands recording, sung by a family of the last name Bligen, recorded by Guy and Candie Carawan in the 1950's, now available on a Rounder CD; also transcribed by them. It's a very interesting variant of the old slave song and ubiquitous 60's summer camp song, Michael, Row The Boat Ashore, with a very different melody, more dramatic in a way, and lends itself well to high volume...unless we're actually rowing :-).
Hi, Charley -
Speaking of kicking up a storm, a huge storm is expected today and tomorrow, with upt to 60 knot winds. Neither of us will be a Mystic this year, but hope to next year for the big 30th anniversary fest. Hope all's well your way.
