Thread Name: sea shanties
Subject: RE: sea shanties

My references include the short bio that Danny McLeod did as part of his accompaning song notes to SEABOOT DUFF & HANDSPIKE GRUEL, performed by one of his sea music groups Pinch of Salt; PM me for Danny's e-mail address. C. Fox Smith herself describes in one of her sailortown short stories books talking with various shipkeepers from roughly 1904 to 1914, much of that time based in Vancouver. With a little work I could provide the relevant book titles, most of which are still available at

Hope you are someone else in the area can figure out a way to follow up the adventures of C. Fox Smith in British Colombia.
