Our monthly shanty, forebitter and fo'c's'le ballad session will be this Saturday,October 17th, from 3:30 to 7:30 (or 7:15) PM at The Press Room on Daniel Street in Portsmouth, NH.

I need to slip out around 7:15 to get to a friend's concert in Dover, but I'm sure I can entrust the last 15 minutes to some responsible adult.

Saturday will be a great opportunity to sing all the songs you either learned at last month's Portsmouth Maritime Folk Festival or to sing the songs you didn't get a chance to sing.

It is so good to be having regular sessions at The Press Room again! We've got a lot of singing to do to make up for not having the July or August sessions.

Hope I see you there and we'll make the rafters roar!

Linn

Just a reminder to please leave a comment when you check in here -- to refresh the thread and reassure me I won't be singing alone on Saturday.

Every fall and spring I have 6 weeks of extra-busy. This is the fall period. I've dropped by to read infrequently and posted less, but I'll refresh!

Small group this month (film festival going on in town as well as other events) but, yes, wonderful.

The crew was me (Linn Schulz), Charlie Ipcar (Charley Noble), Susan Young, Tami (Ranger1), Emery Hutchins, Bill Lehrman & Carol Pierson, Don & Cathy Hale, Jeri, Justine Donovan, Carol Coronis, Gail Diderickson and her sister Janice, and Dave Johnson. A couple visiting from north of Toronto found us by accident and really enjoyed finding this kind of music on their visit to Portsmouth. He (don't know their names) came over to talk, asked if we knew the songs of Stan Rogers…and then, despite his wife's urging, refused to lead "Barrett's Privateers". And Dan Young came in a couple times between events at the New Hampshire Film Festival.

What we sang was --

1. Lukey's Boat - Emer Hutchins
2. Merchant's Island - Charlie Ipcar
3. Knickerbocker Line - Linn Schulz
4. Song of the Fishgutters - Susan Young
5. River Lee - Emery Hutchins
6. Cannery Shed [Mary Garvey] - Linn Schulz
7. Bailey's Mistake - Charlie Ipcar
8. Nine Times a Night - Linn Schulz
9. Greenland Whale Fisheries - Don Hale
10. Female Drummer - Susan Young
11. Black Bird, Get Up - Jeri
12. Saltpetre Shanty - Don Hale
13. Loon Mountain Lake - Charlie Ipcar
14. The Frozen Logger - Don Hale
15. Drink To the Laddies [Sue West] - Susan Young
16. West Indies Blues - Charlie Ipcar & Emery Hutchins
and Charlie retold the story of how he collected it and modified it
17. Old Zeb - Emery Hutchins
18. Sailor's Prayer [Tom Lewis] - Linn Schulz
19. Noah Built the Ark (Sittin' By the River On the Levee) - Sue Young
20. Natchez and the Delta Queen Race - Charlie Ipcar
21. Hey Rain - Emery Hutchins
22. Neptune's Daughter - Susan Young
23. Mollymauk - Jeri
24. Blue Mountain - Emery Hutchins
25. Good-Bye My Riley-O - Justine Donovan
26. Grey Funnel Line - Don Hale
27. The Chanteyman - Charlie Ipcar
28. Backside of Nantucket Point - Linn Schulz
29. Yangtze River Blues - Justine Donovan
30. Way hey, Up She Rises / Whitby Maid - Carol Coronis
31. Shake Her, Johnny, Shake Her - Linn Schulz
32. Sugar In the Hold - Susan Young
33. Storm Along, Stormy - Charlie Ipcar
34. Fall Down, Billy O'Shea - Emery Hutchins
35. Brandy-O - Susan Young (and Justine Donovan & Carol Coronis -- 3/4 of London Julie)
36. Land On the Shore - Susan Young
37. Wake Up, Susianna - Charlie Ipcar
38. Sloop John A [Les Barker] - Linn Schulz
(As I explained at the Sunday Book & Bar session during the PMFF, there are sea songs
that are sad, there are sea songs that are happy, and there are sea songs that sound happy but are sad. This is a song of extreme disappointment.)

And, on that note, I had to leave the session in order to get to a Bob Halperin concert at Red & Shorty's in Dover. I left Susan Young to be the responsible adult for the next half hour and to write down the songs that were sung so I could include them here. And I'll post them as soon as she emails them to me. (But she's tied up today at the film festival, I'm sure.)

From Susan Young this morning --

So here is the final bit.

Lasting song leaders: Charlie Ipcar, Don Hale, Susan Young, Carol Coronis (she sang one more left right after you).

Lasting chorus singers: Mrs Hale, Tami (Ranger1), and the Lehrmans (not sure of the spelling of their name).

Last songs in order:
Brandy (You're a fine girl) - Carol Coronis
Mobile Bay - Charlie Ipcar
Shenandoa - Don Hale
Follow the Heron Home - Sue Young
Outside Track - Charlie Ipcar
Seaman's Hymn [Nelson's Prayer] - Don Hale

Don closed us out with that and it was 7:27, when all was said and done.

Susan Young
