This coming Saturday, 16 June, will be both the regular monthly, and the Third Annual Barry Finn Memorial Shanty, Forebitter and Ballad Session at the Press Room, Daniel St. in Portsmouth, NH from 3:30 to 7:30 PM.

We're expecting a good turnout, including many of this year's Mysticians. Please come join us in lifting a song, a pint, a tot in remembrance of our old friend.

Linn (Bat Goddess) and Tom (Curmudgeon)

Charlene and I will roll in from Albany. We thought of Barry at Mystic as various people sang his songs, dedicated songs to him, imitated his unique style (Bonnie Milner!), and remembered his participation at the late night sing in the Youth Training Building.

We're looking forward to seeing the Press Room gang once again!

Jim Saville and I will certainly be attending. There certainly were some of Barry's songs resounding from the Mystic stages and the German Dance Hall, and in Gloucester on Monday.

We'll bring copies of The Complete Poetry of Cicely Fox Smith and my new CD Songs from an Old Sea Chest.

Anyone coming up from the Boston area? If so, please send me a PM.

I am free over the weekend, but don't like the idea of a 2 hour drive to Portsmouth!!
Maybe I should write to Marty?
We only met a few times, but I too miss Barry. What could have been??

Regular Friday Press Room session is today from 4:30-9:00 -- would two sessions make it a worthwhile trip?

The long drive can be stressful but less so if you sing all the way! It's 90 miles one way from Richmond, Maine, to Portsmouth, and I'm always surprised when we arrive there well before I've begun the last verse of "The News in Daly's Bar."

Cheerily,

Tim's drive from Woods Hole to Portsmouth is more like 140 miles, taking 2½ hours if traffic's good. (This route includes taking Rt 3 from the Cape through downtown Boston, so it's always iffy.)

I'm pleased to be hosting him, and he's planning to come by my place near Exeter on the way, Saturday.

Re Tim, I'm glad someone has a short drive. Good for Tim! Albany is a little farther. It's all good. A few songs, beautiful mountains, we're there!

Tim's shanties were a hit at Mystic I'll tell you. And it was fun seeing him enjoy the beer hall shanty sing scene from a royal throne in the middle of the room just be below the beer taps. (He wore a hat to collect the splash!) Like a king! A repeat performance is urgently requested by fans.

Also at Mystic: Wasn't Jeff a shining star? Of course Finest Kind teamed up on him and owned the harmony side of the event. But Jeff was spot on with every song and raised the average under the tents. What a joy to listen to, and I hope he'll be singing with us tomorrow.

After hours at Mystic it was Charlie, Norris, Mike, and Chris who provided the core of good singing. I think Saturday night after hours was the best I've seen and heard in five years (I don't always both see and hear; it depends on the libations). 40 plus folks, with Mark Bernier his joyful ranting self and Craig Edwards cast a spell of sound and rhythm. Well I look forward to singing with you again on Saturday, Charlie.

We're lucky people to have places like the Press Room and friends to sing a chorus with. And the longer the chorus, the more I remember my friend Barry.

See you tomorrow in Portsmouth.

Best,
Paul

There certainly was a fine turnout and everyone got several rounds of singing. Of Barry's songs there were:

Roller Bowler
Yangtse River Shanty
Ida Lewis
London Julie
Hard Times in Ol Virginia

And there was the shanty dedicated to Barry as well that Tim Radford and Marty led at the end.

Everyone was in fine form and there was even opportunities for more quiet songs.

My friend from Yorkshire, Jim Saville, seemed quite delighted. And now he's on his way to Boston with Bill Lehrman and then more shantying on Sunday with the MIT crowd.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Dave not only has a great camera, but a good eye...

I haven't had a chance to even look at the few photos I took and Steve Smith was taking pictures as well.

Let's see, roll call: Tom and I, Justine Donovan, Rose Sheehan, Annie Storr and her nephew, Steve Smith, Jeff Keller, Dianne Lavoie, Paul and Charleen Schurr, Susan Young (with cupcakes!), Don Hale and wife (sorry! I'm horrible with names!), Bill Lehrman and Carol Pierson, Jim Saville from Yorkshire, Charlie Ipcar, Ernie Pigeon and Amy, Lynn Feingold, Tim Radford, Kevin McDermott, Marty Stock, Dave Hallowell, Ann Robinson, Ramona Connelly, Pete Hale and Laurette Cossaboon, Barbara Benn, Carol Coronis, Dave Johnson (at a distance) and Chris Vaughan. Tom and I had to leave fairly early, so other than Ellen Hamill, I don't know who else we missed. (But I talked to Ellen later so I knew she was there.)

By the way, the day was also Bloomsday, a fact that is pertinent in the Kevin's choice of a song a bit later.

1. Won't You Help Me Raise 'Em - Justine Donovan
2. Whiskey-O, Johnny-O - Charlie Ipcar
3. Rolla Bolla (yeah, I know it's Roller Boller, but Barry sang it "Rolla Bolla" and we do, too) - Ernie Pigeon
4. Johnny Come Down to Hilo - Paul Schurr
5. Mingalay Boat Song - Jim Saville
6. Big Bow Wow - Dianne Lavoie
7. Sally Free and Easy - Susan Young
8. Bully In the Alley - Marty Stock
9. John Kanaka - Jeff Keller
10. Sugar In the Hold - Dave Hallowell
11. A Long Time Ago - Tim Radford
12. The Erie Canal - Rose Sheehan
13. Those Lovely Seaside Girls - Kevin McDermott
(more on Kevin and James Joyce here -- JoyceSong
14. Home, Dearie, Home - Linn Schulz
15. Excursion Around the Bay - Paul
16. Bowling (parody of Roll the Woodpile Down) - Charlie
17. Bound Down Trinidad - Ernie
18. Hard Times of Old Virginia - Justine
19. Drinkin' That Wine - Tim
20. Shine Your Buttons With Brasso - Lynn Feingold (alias The Tavern Wench -- see TavernWench )
21. Down Below - Linn
22. Lovers and Friends - Pete Hale
23. Round the Corner, Sally - Dave
24. Donkey Riding - Jeff Keller
25. All For Me Grog - Dianne
26. Ready For the Storm - Carol Coronis
27. Lee Fore Brace - Charlie and Jim
28. Race of Long Ago - Linn
29. Rolling Down the Bay to Juliana - Marty

And then we had to leave, alas. I hope Ernie took over the scribe duties...

Linn-

You got everyone I saw while you were there but I think a few folks dropped in later.

Thanks to Bill and Carol for taking Jim Saville with them to Boston where he should be attending the shanty sing at MIT today, and flying back to the UK on Monday. It's been a lot of fun sharing time with Jim this week. I'm sure he has a very distorted but pleasant impression of how people in the States deal with strangers.

Hi all,

Sorry for the delay in posting the remaining songs after Linn and Tom had to leave, but Amy and I took off for parts sans internet right after the session on Saturday. Back in the e-world now, so here's the scoop (with the usual apologies for any mispellings or incorrect namings.....

After Linn and Tom left the Pressroom on Saturday, Sue Young kept the log for a while, then gave it to me to take it to the end of the session.

From Sue's notes:

30. Essiquibo River ................. Ernie
31. Fair Maid At 17 ................. Sue
32. Fathom The Bowl ................. Paul
33. Yangtze River Shanty ............ Charlie
34. If I Were A Blackbird ........... Ramona Connelly
35. Salonika ........................ Hutch
36. Bonney Bunch Of Thyme ........... Diane
37. Bold Riley ...................... Rose Sheehan
38. Autumn .......................... Chris Vaughn
39. London Julie .................... Justine
40. Farewell To Tarwathie ........... Don Hale
41. Roll Down - Fair Maidens Of Plymouth .....Paul
42. Faithful Sailor Boy ..............Tim Radford
43. Santiana ........................ Mike Blair
44. South Australia ..................Peter Hale

Sue left and turned the log over to me, so from my notes:

45. Mobile Bay ...................... Charlie Ipcar
46. King Of Rome .................... Rose Sheehan
47. Pleasant and Delightful ......... Marty
48. Three Score and Ten ............. Jim Saville
49. Pay Me My Money Down ............ Hutch
50. Billy's Boat .................... Ernie
51. The Whaleboat ... An original song by Paul (and a good one!)
52. The Gasman Cometh ............... Diane
53. Boney Bunch Of Roses-O .......... Kevin McDermott
54. The Bay Of Biscay-O ............. Mike Blair
55. Greenland Whalefisheries ........ Don Hale
56. Row On .......................... Marty
57. Ida Lewis ....................... Justine
58. Shanty For Barry ................ Tim Radford and Marty

We ended this Barry Finn Memorial Session with the Shanty For Barry, at the request of Justine, rather than the usual Seaman's Hymn.
