The February Monthly Shanty, Forebitter, and Foc's'l Ballad Session will be happening this Saturday, February 20 at The Press Room in Portsmouth, NH from 3:30 to 7:30 PM.

This frigid snap will have snapped back to the unseasonably warm weather -- it's predicted to be close to 50 degrees F. Accuweather says cloudy and mild with rain possible. But at 50 degrees, that's okay! We can sing winter sea songs anyway.

Nick Noble intends to be at the Friday weekly trad session and at Saturday's shanty sing.

I'll have to leave around 7 or 7:15 to see David Surette and Susie Burke at Red & Shorty's, but I'm certain there will be a responsible adult to keep the sing going until 7:30.

See you there!

Linn

S'pozed to be in the 50s on Saturday -- not exactly typical February weather!

So, where is everyone? Am I a voice in the wilderness? I expect to be there. As for a "responsible adult", adult, probably. Responsible, not so sure......

Where is everyone? Good question, Don. Been wondering that myself.

Ah, well -- I'm sure we'll have a quorum on Saturday.

I'll be there, I am an adult. The rest is unknown.

We will carry on though!

Good session last night -- looking forward to lots of good singing today.

Nick Noble and I are crossing the bridge to Kittery earlier in the afternoon to say hi to Chris Vaughan who is still recuperating.

Quite the session! From a camera-toting music major from Bates College (Tom's alma mater; he was Class of 1964) doing research to a door-blocking (I think that's what they were doing on the sidewalk in front of The Press Room) lively clutch of college students that Mike M. lured inside with the promise of sea songs. AND Nick Noble (of WICN's "The Folk Revival" fame).

I doubt if I'll have time for my report today as several of us New Hampshuh types are heading to the Boston sea music sing at the Constitution museum this afternoon.

And I have to get the last half hour's-worth of songs from Nick for the list.

Later!

Linn-

It was a really fun session, and I've missed the last two because of the Christmas madness and the January bad weather. I've just posted an album of photos that the Bates student Maddie was gracious enough to take for us. I do hope that Nick or someone else got a good photo of her singing as well.

Cheerily,
Charlie Ipcar

Hey Charlie,

It was fun, wasn't it.

Where did you post the photos?

Charley, the name of the song that I couldn't remember is "Shipmates". Perhaps you could dust it off and sing it, along with "Mariner's Compass", next time around.
                               Thanks, Don

Charlie has posted some great photos at Facebook and Nick has posted a slew of photos at The Folk Revival Facebook group page. Dianne, when I've got a minute, I'll email you some of them.

Don, by the way, met us yesterday at the USS Constitution Museum in Boston (well, Charlestown) for the Boston Area Chantey and Maritime Sing to help represent the Press Room session (even though he had to drive NORTH to Boston rather than SOUTH from NH -- we weren't so much the New Hampshire contingent as the PRESS ROOM contingent.

I've been playing catch up today since I had four sessions (and a sleep deficit) for the past five days.

But here is the beginning, at least, of my report.

The crew (not counting the kids from BU) were me, Hutch, Nick N., Dianne L., Don Hale (Don, you can email me for anyone's last name that you don't know), Charlie I. (Charley Noble -- no relation to Nick), Tami B. (Ranger1), Gail F., Nicole H., Maddie the music major from Bates College, Jim F., Mike M. (who brought the young crowd in), Jeff Warner, and Gail D. and her sister Janice and Gail's daughter listening. Oh, and Dave and Robin from whom Nick rented accommodations in Greenland (no, not THAT one -- New Hampshire).

What we sang --

1. Sailor's Prayer (Tom Lewis) - Linn (Bat Goddess)

19. William Taylor - Gail F.
20. All For Me Grog - Dianne
21. Drink To the Men Who've Gone Ashore - Charlie
22. Pay Me My Money Down - Hutch
23. Oklahoma! - Dianne & Nick in honor of one of the college students who came in with Mike -- they're attending a retreat at the Sheraton; she was from Oklahoma. Others were from Georgia and San Francisco as well as Boston.
24. Rolling Home - Gail F.
25. Oh, Molasses - Nick (a bit of Boston history the BU kids probably hadn't heard)

28. Bonnie Bunch of Thyme - Dianne
29. Down Below (no, not THAT one) - Maddy from Bates

You've done another great job listing the songs and the singers.

The young woman from Bates College is Maddie Legro, and she may join us again next month. She also did a great job of taking photos with my camera.

It would be lovely to see her again. I hope she gets around to emailing me her mailing address. I'd like to give her a Tom's CD "A Bottle Full For the Shantyman" -- he was Bates Class of 1964. He missed his 50th class reunion which was held seven months after he died. But the CD (and photographs) were there.

I'll have another youngster to add to the crew next month. Nineteen-year-old daughter of a co-worker not only knows who Stan Rogers is, but loves his music.
