Hi all,

Sorry for the delay in posting the remaining songs after Linn and Tom had to leave, but Amy and I took off for parts sans internet right after the session on Saturday. Back in the e-world now, so here's the scoop (with the usual apologies for any mispellings or incorrect namings.....

After Linn and Tom left the Pressroom on Saturday, Sue Young kept the log for a while, then gave it to me to take it to the end of the session.

From Sue's notes:

30. Essiquibo River ................. Ernie
31. Fair Maid At 17 ................. Sue
32. Fathom The Bowl ................. Paul
33. Yangtze River Shanty ............ Charlie
34. If I Were A Blackbird ........... Ramona Connelly
35. Salonika ........................ Hutch
36. Bonney Bunch Of Thyme ........... Diane
37. Bold Riley ...................... Rose Sheehan
38. Autumn .......................... Chris Vaughn
39. London Julie .................... Justine
40. Farewell To Tarwathie ........... Don Hale
41. Roll Down - Fair Maidens Of Plymouth .....Paul
42. Faithful Sailor Boy ..............Tim Radford
43. Santiana ........................ Mike Blair
44. South Australia ..................Peter Hale

Sue left and turned the log over to me, so from my notes:

45. Mobile Bay ...................... Charlie Ipcar
46. King Of Rome .................... Rose Sheehan
47. Pleasant and Delightful ......... Marty
48. Three Score and Ten ............. Jim Saville
49. Pay Me My Money Down ............ Hutch
50. Billy's Boat .................... Ernie
51. The Whaleboat ... An original song by Paul (and a good one!)
52. The Gasman Cometh ............... Diane
53. Boney Bunch Of Roses-O .......... Kevin McDermott
54. The Bay Of Biscay-O ............. Mike Blair
55. Greenland Whalefisheries ........ Don Hale
56. Row On .......................... Marty
57. Ida Lewis ....................... Justine
58. Shanty For Barry ................ Tim Radford and Marty

We ended this Barry Finn Memorial Session with the Shanty For Barry, at the request of Justine, rather than the usual Seaman's Hymn.
