Thread Name: Help: Wickford Express Sea Shanty Singers
Subject: RE: Help: Wickford Express Sea Shanty Singers
As a child, growing up on Cape Cod, my parents often had overnight guests. Some of these guests were from the Heritage Plantation, and some of them were from Mystic Seaport. Many of these visiting friends were musicians. The List is distinguished, but standouts include The Wickford Express. Although I was young I remember Everett having a helmet with horns on it, some craziness, and wonderful sea shanties (I always cried when they threw the old horse overboard). It is because of all of these people that music has continued to be a part of my life, and I have continued the tradition of my parents of hosting music and musicians. Thank You Wickford Express!
