Subject: RE: Sea Chanteys All Over The News
1830 to 1860 was the main era but some were still in use in the 1920s. Phil will be along shortly to tell us about the 600-year-old ones from Africa and Arabia, but what we know of as the chanty in the western world doesn't predate 1830 though there were prototype rowing songs in the Gulf.
