Thread Name: A.L.Lloyd & Sea Chanties
Subject: RE: A.L.Lloyd & Sea Chanties
Plenty of singers singing shanties

In name only. They have no work or workers for their songs. It's the one thing that will usually set work song apart from the rest of pop folk... no stitch-counting, period correct reenactors to speak of.

Most every other genre would give modern A.L. Lloyd types the side-eye for everything from their nylon strings to the straight-off-the-rack wardrobe. Getting it as close to right as Health & Safety & Underwriters & Protected Species will allow is the fun... and the work.
