|Nancy King||Shanties as work songs, question (19)||RE: Shanties as work songs, question||07 Jul 12|
For many years at the Washington (DC) Folk Festival, we had a "Work Songs" workshop with various contraptions rigged to show how the songs (shanties, track-lining songs, waulking songs, etc.) were actually used. It was a lot of fun, and got the point across, but the main lesson learned was that most modern singers do them WAY too fast!
