Subject: RE: A.L.Lloyd & Sea Chanties
I cannot see any evidence of any posts decriein Folk Scholarship in this thread,
If I want information about Shanties. I don not use AL Lloyd but i contact Chris Roche or Jim Mageaan, who are very knowledgeable

"TikTok and Wellerman are top o' the pops at the moment. Still nothing to do with naval science." quote
However Wellerman has popularised Shanties and brought the songs to the attention of a lot of people that might not have otherwise heard them .

"that's the difference between a museum piece and a piece of live tradition. If it doesn't evolve in some way it's a museum piece.!
quote Steve Gardham .
Wellerman therEfore is helping to keep the tradition alive even though[ according to Phil d'Conch it has nothing to do with naval sciEnce
While not decrieng Naval Science, keeping the tradition alive is very important
