Thread Name: Musical question (chantey types)
Subject: RE: Musical question
At Chippenham festival a year or so ago they got a crew of(Ithink)Sea Scouts to do the hauling etc while a shanty man sang the songs to keep them in time.I gather it worked very well.
The Royal Navy( or for our American friends the REAL Navy) used a fiddler,not a shanty man to keep the crew in time.
