Our monthly shanty, forebitter and fo'c's'le ballad session will be this Saturday, September 19th, from 3:30 to 7:30 PM at The Press Room on Daniel Street in Portsmouth, NH.

This will be a great opportunity to warm up for the 16th Annual Portsmouth Maritime Folk Festival which will be the last weekend of the month, September 26th & 27th. More info here including the schedule for this year's festival -- 2015 PMFF


Nick Noble on WICN in Worcester is devoting most of this Thursday's (September 17th) "The Folk Revival" show to a live session (or as close to a session as we can recreate in the studio) promoting the PMFF. The show is from 7:00 - 11:00 PM Eastern time and can be listened to online by going to -- The Folk Revival
and click on "Listen Live Online".

Hope we see you there, both at the shanty sing and at the festival!

Linn

It's REALLY good to be back at The Press Room after having to cancel both the July and August sessions while the sprinkler and alarm system work was being done at The Press Room.

Small, but very vocal session. And we were a pleasant surprise for a couple who moved to Portsmouth about a year ago and hadn't yet found their kind of music. Glad we could supply it! (And let them know about the weekly Friday session AND next weekend's Portsmouth Maritime Folk Festival).

The crew was me (Linn Schulz nom de Mudcat Bat Goddess), Emery Hutchins, Charlie Ipcar (Charley Noble), Judy Barrows, Tami Bill (Ranger1), Sue Young, Gail & Jim Finn, Pete Hale, Dianne Lavoie, Marty Stock, Dave Nunes, Chris Vaughan (and his daughter Stephanie from NYC), Justine Donovan, Ramona Connelly, Carol Coronis, Bill Lehrman & Carol Pierson, Gail Diederickson & her sister Janice, W.B., Bob Eaton (who stole about an hour from his volunteering duties at Strawbery Banke/NH Public Television event), and Tyler Buck. W.B. was in the vicinity. And Jeri texted Sue something about feeling one step above an artichoke. That meant she wasn't there. And evidently Don Hale still had the bug that kept him from Nick Noble's WICN "The Folk Revival" PMFF promo Thursday night.

What we sang was --

1. Roll the Old Chariot - Emery Hutchins
2. Shake Her, Johnny, Shake Her - Linn Schulz (first time in public)
3. Fire Marengo - Charlie Ipcar

The actual title is Hills of Isle Au Haut. Gordon wrote a couple of songs with Isle Au Haut in the titles.

I'm still following this thread and wishing I could figure out who W. B. is! Oh, well, even if you told me I probably wouldn't know him/her, anyway!

His name is William Bernan, but he prefers to be called W.B. He's a writer who hangs out at The Press Room and sings country and western. Sometimes he even brings his guitar.
