Subject: RE: sea shanties
A great resource for the sea music of the south Pacific is Revell Carr. He is a PhD candidate in ethnomusicology at UC Santa Barbara, specializing in the sea songs of pacific islanders, and the musical contacts between whaling ship sailors and islanders. Not to be confused with his father, also named Revell Carr, who is the former director of the Mystic Seaport Museum.

If you sign up on mudcat as a member, you can receive personal messages, and I can give you Rev's email address there, if you'd like. He also checks into Mudcat from time to time.
