NbptErnie March Shanty Session@Press Room-NH (20) RE: March Shanty Session@Press Room-NH 21 Mar 11

The March Shanty Session was great fun, as usual.

Acting as note-taker in Linn's absence was an interesting experience, and has certainly increased my appreciation for the effort she puts into the task. Following are the details as best as I was able to record them. Many thanks to those who helped me identify folks and shantys not already familiar to me. As the task seemed to become strangely easier with successive quaffs of Guiness, I would urge you all to scan the list for errors, and post any needed corrections or additions. Here goes:

Shanty Session at the Pressroom, Portsmouth NH, USA. 19MAR11.

In attendance were:

Tom Hall, Mark Ryer, Ernie Pigeon, Amy DeSilva, Chris Maden, Dave Coffin, Carol Coronis, Norris Dale, Charlie Ipcar, Don Hale, Tony Hilliard, Janet Young, Mike Modern, Barry O'Brien, Marty Stock, Bob Eaton, Ramona Connely, Bill Lehrman, Carol Pierson, Bob Frost, Darbie and Rob Pettengill, Scott and Susan Lambert, Jeff Murdock, Dorithea and Steve Kerlee.
