I've already said that the crew was just the three of us -- Don Hale from south of Boston, Mike James from Port Townsend, Washington, and me (from Nottingham, a hop, skip, and two jumps from Dover).
We talked at least as much as we sang. And I caught myself a couple times, being wrapped up in discussing the songs or coming up with a related song or line, neglecting to write down a song I sang. (I think I listed everyone else's.) If I forgot, maybe I can reconstruct what and when I sang it.
What we sang --
1. Race of Long Ago - Linn
(Mike was unfamiliar with Cecily Fox Smith or the songs from her poetry.)
2. Sugar I the Hold - Mike (different arrangement that what we were familiar with)
3. Greenland Whale – Don (from the journal of the whaleship "Bengal)
4. Final Trawl - Mike
5. Plum Island National Anthem - Linn
6. Paddy West - Don
7. Johnny, Come Down to Hilo - Mike
8. Shake Her, Johnny, Shake Her - Linn
(Both previous mention a woman in a blue dress.)
9. Fare Ye Well - Mike
(A variant of "Good-bye, Fare Thee Well" that Don & I hadn't heard before. I have to pass it on to Jeff Warner who, after he gave a 1920s citation when he sang it at PMFF, I told him about Arthur Conan Doyle's mention of it by title in his 1880 journal when he was surgeon on a whaler out of Peterhead.)
10. Paddy Doyle's Boots - Linn
11. Girls Around Cape Horn - Don
12. Sloop John A [Les Barker parody] - Linn
13. Nurse Pinched the Baby/Gin Is Mother's Ruin - Linn
14. The Dutchman - Mike
15. Bridget Flynn - Linn
16. Mariquita - Don (Charlie Ipcar adaptation of C. Fox Smith poem)
17. New York Girls - Mike
18. Shipmates - Don (another C. Fox Smith poem Charlie adapted to song)
19. Bold Riley - Mike (another version)
20. Seamen's Hymn - The Company
Don, please let me know of any corrections or if you remember anything I may have inadvertently not written down.
And thanks, Don and Mike, for traveling a distance to come to the singaround. Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!
