This month's shanty/forebitter/ballad session wil be Sat., 15 Aug. from 3:30 to 7:30 PM at the Press Room in Portsmouth NH.

A few of us had a chance to warm up yesterday alongside the Tall Ships that were visiting. There is a slideshow of the ships, but I can't get the link to work. Maybe later.

Looking forward to seeing a good turnout Saturday - Tom

Judy and I are going to make it but it's a really busy weekend, and with a Roll & Go concert on Sunday evening at the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath.

Stallion-

Count yourself lucky; it could have been much worse.

We're about to take off for lovely Portsmouth. Hope everyone is in a singing mood.

Of course, it's also a great beach or boating day.

I wonder what the air conditioner at the Press Room will be tuned to today!

Cheerily,
Charley Noble and JudyB

Hope the Press Room AC is like it was last night -- comfortably cool. Just got back from a quick, short, not particularly profitable, but very HOT yardsale loop. Hey, kids! It's HOT out there!

Looking forward to some cooling porter and song.

Looks like there will be one or more Boston area contingent aiming for Portsmouth. Wish you could be here, Stallion!

Just home -- good session! Not just the usual suspects. Some occasional singers from Boston and a crew of new singers as well.

Later I'll post what I sang -- got some other stuff to get done right now.

Thanks to all!

It certainly was nice to have a large group of new folks there. The five or so of us regulars would have been hard-pressed to lead all the songs for three hours.

I was taken notes for about half the evening for songs sung, and then lost it!

Linn kicked everything off with "Nantucket Bay" and I followed with "Mobile Bay" Then one of the folks from the MIT shanty sing led "Logdriver's Waltz" followed by "Rio Grande." Linn led "The Sloop John A" and I followed that parody with "Bowling" which was followed by a comical Morris dancing song which parodied "Fiddler's Green." Linn led "Shanty in Old Shantytown" which I followed with the drinking spree song "Ballad of the Old Navy." One of the MIT folks led "John Kanaka" followed by Linn leading "Cannery Shed." Someone started a string of "tea songs" leading with "Drink Your Porcelain Dry." I led a couple of verses of "Don't Swat Your Mother Boys" and later led the tea clipper song "Old Pagoda Anchorage," "West Indies Blues" and "The Wreck of the Lady Washington." Linn also led "Nine Times a Night."

Chris led several songs including "Fiddlers Green" and "Barret's Privateers."

Marty was certainly in good voice but I'm no longer certain what he led other than a comical ballad about a sailor who is eaten by a shark. And Barbara Benn led "Pleasant and Delightful" and one other song.

JudyB did a rousing rendition of Roll the Old Chariot."

Chris closed down the evening with "Sailor's Prayer."

Sadly, we're going to miss the shanty sing in September as well as the Maritime Festival, being off in the Pacific Northwest.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Away with the family. Finally got to meet Patrick Lyons, my grand-nephew and spend some time with family. The little ones grow up to fast and the old ones grow too old too fast.
