winniemih Shanty background: Portland's Tunnels (32) RE: Shanty background: Portland's Tunnels 22 Feb 02

I live in the Portland area. There are two well known (in our area anyway) sea shantey singers that call themselves "Shanghaied on the Willamette".I believe their name comes from the topic of this thread. They do some great regional songs. Portland Folklore Society could connect you with them if you wanted to catch a performance when you visit (sorry, I can't do links or clicky things; try ). I know they have at least one C.D. As for Irish music in Portland, Alberta Street Pub has sessions and invitation only jams happening many days of the week, and Biddy Mcgraw's is doing a Sunday session (just started a week ago). Also there's a "friendly" (i.e. slower paced) Irish session that happens almost every Friday at various locations. You're welcome to P.M. me if you'd like more info. Winnie
