The December Monthly Shanty, Forebitter, Foc's'l Ballad, and Annual Seasonal Song Session will be happening this Saturday, December 19th at The Press Room in Portsmouth, NH from 3:30 to 7:30 PM.

This annual sea and seasonal song session usually brings out a lot of material not sung the rest of the year. We'll definitely have to do Brian Chadburne's "Shopping Shanty" and, I'm sure, Charlie has a few seasonal songs about traditional Maine weather, etc. It's wide open for songs we only get a short opportunity to sing each year.

See you there!

Linn

Well, the pub was quiet when we started...took a bit to get a quorum and the bar was sparsely populated, too.

Then we got loud...;-)

Yes, we sang sea songs; yes, we sang seasonal songs... Oh, and yes, we got silly, too. Much fun and merriment was had.

Who was there? Well, I was, and Ranger1, Dianne, Gail F., Don, Jeri, Bill & Carol, Marty, Mike, Susan, and Lucas who is living on his boat also showed up about an hour before we closed the session. Listeners included Gail D. and her sister Janice.

We sang --

1. Streets of Laredo (parody) - Dianne (uh huh)
2. Deck Us Now With Boston Charlie (Pogo/Walt Kelly) - Linn
3. Joy To The World (feline version) - Linn
4. Nine Times a Night - Linn
5. Blow, Boys, Blow - Dianne
6. Bear Away, Yankee - Jeri
7. Home, Dearie, Home - Linn

9. Good Ship Calabar - Mike

19. Seven Old Ladies Locked In the Lavatory - Jeri & Mike
20. Down Below - Linn (somehow, it seemed appropriate)
21. Hiram's Famous Homemade Beer - Mie
22. Garnet's Homemade Beer - Jeri
23. Rebels In the Hold (Star Wars parody by Susan & Dan) - Susan
24. Leaving of Liverpool - Gail F.
25. The King - Marty
26. The Wren - Linn
27. Maid of Amsterdam - Lucas (then Linn sang the "thatch" verse)
28. Christmas Is Coming, the Goose Is Getting Fat (round) - Don
29. While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks By Night - Dianne
(yes, Jeri started "While Shepherds Washed Their Socks By Night"...)
30. Wexford Carol - Susan
31. Christmas Eve At the Bridge (collected in Nova Scotia) - Mike
32. What Does The Deep Sea Say - Susan
33. Simple gifts/Lord of the Dance - Marty
34. Old Newfie Outhouse - Mike
35. Five Constipated Men In the Bible - Dianne
36. Noah Built the Ark - Susan
37. Turns Over In the Morning (Garrison Keillor's winter parody of Gordon Bok's "Turning Towards the Morning") - Marty
38. Three Ships - group effort (mostly Susan), requested by Gail F.
39. Little Piece of Wang - Linn
40. Donald, Where's Your Trousers? - Mike
41. Angus and the Kilt - Susan
42. Martin Said To His Men - Dianne (and a verse or two from Linn & Marty)

48. Let No Man Steal Your Thyme - Dianne

50. Nelson's Prayer/Seaman's Hymn - Don and the Company

Okay. I was attentive, but negligent. I know I've forgotten at least one song. Gail F. sang "Rose of Allendale" at some point and I didn't get it written down. What else did I forget or get wrong? A bit too much levity, perhaps...;-)

First off, where did my message go?????

You are right about Gail singing the "Rose of Allendale" and it was early in the session. Since I don't take notes, I cannot tell you the exact spot.

Perhaps she was thinking of sending another "note", but lost the key after C#?

             Merry Merry & Happy Happy, Don

Another one I missed -- and it was ME singing it! Just as I was planning to sing it, Sue asked me to fit in "Maggie May", so I did.

We want this record to be complete, fear-pete's-sake.

What's Pete got to do with it? He wasn't even there!

Safe and happy holidays to you all.
