This coming Saturday, June 21st, will be both the regular monthly, and the Fifth 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, perhaps, some of this year's Mysticians and a certain radio folk show host from Worcester, MA.

Please come join us in lifting a song, a pint, a tot in remembrance of our old friend.

Linn

Nick Noble from WICN will be at both Friday session and Saturday's session.

Mary, I'm beginning to think we'll both need to wear some distinguishing flower in our lapels to recognize each other! It's been way too long. Let me know if there is a good time when you'll be "receiving" (perhaps with Kendall and Jacqui...Deb...) and I'll aim my car to South Portland.

Gawd, I miss you and the rest of the contingent!

Can't be there, but here's a shanty .
Sat down for a drink in Liverpool town
HO RO - HO O RO.
When I woke I was outward bound
HO RO HO

For the Congo river we sailed away
HO RO - HO O RO
Bought and paid for a cargo of slaves
HO RO HO

Packed them tighly in the hold
HO RO - HO O RO
and sailed away with our black gold
HO RO HO

Half way across they caught the plague
HO RO - HO O RO
us poor sailors were sore afraid
HO RO HO

We threw their bodies over the side
HO RO - HO O RO
some poor devils were still alive
HO RO HO

For the couple of dollars they paid to me
HO RO - HO O RO
My soul is damned for eternity
HO RO HO

If you did Facebook, Dianne, you could see the photos Nick Noble and others have posted. It was a GREAT session!

By the way, at Facebook the photos are mostly at The Folk Revival's page and at "Pressroom Gang and Clan" group -- yes, that's "Pressroom" one word; I didn't set up the group.
