The monthly shanty/forebitter/ballad session will be happening at The Press Room, Portsmouth NH from 3:30 to 7:30 PM.

Our numbers have been down a bit, but not the quality. Still, it would be nice to enjoy some quantity and quality together again - Tom

Linn-

So, we're doing pirate songs? I've got some Somali friends I could bring down from Portland.

They're not really pirates but they do know some real pirates.

Cheerily,

" 'Arghh!' said Linn." -- Ayuh, that must have been it. (I've got pirate SOCKS on, though...)

P.S. -- I don't KNOW any pirate songs...

How could you not know at least one pirate song?

And someone needs to lead "You Can't be a Pirate" in four-part harmony.

That song is great...maybe once a year. Not worth learning other than the chorus.

Novelty songs only remain a novelty and a joy if they're sung very sparingly.

Wow Linn.....criticality of the pirate song.....and only once a year.

So does this mean no more parodies, too?????

No more laughing, no more fun....etc....

No -- I'm just pointing out that parodies, etc. are MOST effective and funny when used sparingly such as with a new audience or after a previous audience has been deprived for awhile. Like any joke. Might just as well say, "Thirty-seven" and have everyone fall about with laughter. (Talk about old jokes...)

Unfortunately, too, sometimes a parody or funny song all of a sudden becomes the flavor of the day -- and SOMEBODY seems to be singing it everywhere you go. Happens, too, with non-humorous songs, but they have a little more staying power. Even if it's a song you like a lot, it gets very tedious by the end of a festival when you've heard the same song a dozen times by nine different performers or groups. ("Aw, not again!")

Just my coupla pennies' worth.

Linn-

That's very true on recordings as well. Once you've gotten the joke, the parody tracks are invariably the one's I skip over. I even tire of some of Jon Campbell's classics!

Judy will be joining me on the trek south today.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

It certainly was a nice session. When Judy and I walked into the Press Room there was Tom & Linn, Mark, Jeri, Emery, Dave, Marty, and a new Barry (from Vermont). Then the Gloucester gang came in: Peter, Joanne and Rose, followed by Barry Finn & Justine, and finally Barbara and Jeff. There may be a spouse or two I've missed but I think I've got all the folks who led a song.

I finally got Emery to sing "West Indies Blues" which he does a great job on; I got to play concertina rather than banjo!

I led "Mobile Bay," "Tramps (a coaling shanty)," "Lee Fore Brace," "A Ballad of the Old Navy," and "Evening Shadows Fall."

Barbara did a new one by Andrew MacKay (Cranedriver) that sounds ancient, and she collaborated with Jeff on "Keep the Lower Lights Burning."

I'm leaving lots of room for others to fill in but it was a really nice evening.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Barbara's sung that one before -- but nowhere near often enough. I've started to learn it, too, over the winter at moments when the shop was quiet and all the other work done. (Which maybe explains why I don't know it yet.)

The new feller Barry is resident in Vermont in the winter and then cruises up and down the New England coast. He led "Mary Ellen Carter" and "Northwest Passage" by Stan Rogers and I'm thinking he led some traditional shanties as well.

JudyB led "So Long (Good-Bye Old Ship)" by C. Fox Smith and "Neptune's Daughter" by Bob Watson.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble
