Date: 05 Apr 03 - 04:00 PM

Next Saturday, 12 April is the date for the fourth monthly Shanty and Forebitter Session at the Press Room in Portsmouth NH, from 3:30 to 7:30 PM. Since Naemanson and Charley Noble are "jumping ship" this month we could use a couple of new voices. Last month, Tinker made the trek all the way from New Jersey. Anyone want to best that record? Weather is supposed to be in the sweltering '50s.

See you nest week -- Tom

Sad to miss this one, Tom, but this will give everyone else the opportunity to try leading "our songs" without the embarrassment of us being there. Actually, I for one usually enjoy hearing others try one of my songs.

I do wish them folks down at NYC would have had the courtesy to shift their Chantey Sing to a non-competitive week-end.

Have another great afternoon and evening!

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Aim for the tall white steeple (but try not to hit it). The Press Room is a block away back towards the river.

Hey Cranky Yankee it'll be great to see/hear you there. Follow RT#95 north to the last N.H. exit, #7 (if you hit Maine good luck, you may even run down Kendall) at the end of the ramp (lights) go right. Head straight into town (Portsmouth) keeping the river & tugs on your left shoulder. As you get into the main part (not center) of town head up the hill & through the lights bearing right after the lights (not the sharp right at the set of lights. At the end of that block will be the center of town. On your right coming into the center will Be Daniels Street (a one way coming at you). The Press room is 1 block down from the center. I'd wait on using my directions I possitive Bat Goddess will do much better as soon as she see's your question. Good luck & see ya. Barry

Thanks a lot, Sinsull. I went to the doctor today and he says I'm doing great. The bones are lined up the way they're supposed to be and I only lost about 5 pounds which is only half of what they expected. I'm talking more clearly, though I doubt I'll be leading any shanties :-). I walked about 2 miles this morning. I didn't sleep very well, but I seem to be getting my strength back. I am off the ghastly pain medication and am walking around with some low grade pain except when I'm foolish enough to yawn or stretch my jaws in any way. It'll be a couple months before I can sing again, but I have no reason to think I won't be singing as well or better when I come through the other side. I am playing my fiddle a little in the morning and night because I go nuts not being able to get my mouth around a whistle or flute to play a jig or reel or sing a song. I am really looking forward to coming Saturday to see and hear everybody singing.

Look what popped up on the Shenandoah thread in 2000:Subject: RE: Song info:
From: Downeast Bob - PM
Date: 05 Aug 00 - 08:50 AM
In The Mudcat Shop: Shenandoah , Let the Bullgine Run

Lee Murdock, in his Folk Songs of the Great Lakes Region study guide says "This song is thought to have come from boatmen on the Ohio, Mississippi and Missouri Rivers during the mid 1800s. It was also sung by Great Lakes sailors and, eventually found its way onto the salt seas in an adapted form." Then he claims the song was used as a "capstan shanty."
His first statement makes sense to me, but this ain't no capstain chantey. Sailing ships on the lakes must have had capstans, which are big winches used primarily to raise heavy anchors. Riverboats had no need for them. In any case, the rhythym of "Shenandoah" is nothing at all like the rhythm of a capstant chantey.

In 1969, I spent some time in the crew of a full-rigged ship and I know from experience that capstan chanteys have a rather fast almost staccato rhythm. Six crew nenbers would insert six heavy spokes into the capstan and use these to turn the capstan as we marched around it in a circle, with short, powerful steps, our feet pushing against wooden slats attached to the deck as treads.

Our bosun was folksinger Jody Gibson, of Newport, R.I, and when we had to man the capstan, he used chanteys with a fast, regular beat, like Santy Ano, or Clear the Track Let the Bullgine Run. The graceful, slow and flowing lines of Shenandoah would have been useless.

Cranky Yankee, right?

I will be there with a friend. Sins, if your car can handle four adults, a guitar, and crutches we could ride with you. I don't believe your car can do that, though, so I may have to drive down in my little pickup. Fortunately, with the handicap placard, I should be able to find a good parking space.

How are the sidewalks? Clear of snow and ice? Crutches aren't funny when they slip out from under you.

just a note on Shenandoah: Both Stan Hugill in Shanties From The Seven Seas and Frederick Pease Harlow in Chanteying Aboard American Ships have Shenandoah as a capstan chantey, and according to Hugill, also a pumping chantey. Hugill writes: "It was one of the most popular of all capstan and windlass shanties..." He goes on to point out that "Shenandoah" was pronounced in many different ways, and was sometimes omitted altogether for another name, but was basically cut from the same song. He gives a "Shenandoah' version in the book.

The good news, though, is now the house has had the winter detritus cleared out a bit. So I've got a fighting chance of the guest room staying shoveled out until Micca lands in our neck of the woods in October. (Yes, anyone who's seen our place knows it could take that long!)

That was a very nice session. Didn't hear anything I didn't like! Been avoiding such gatherings because of the smoke, and, the fact that my voice is so unpredictable. Sometimes it's not too bad, other times it sounds like George C. Scott immitating Elmer Fudd.
Having the young lady from public radio there was a great idea, she had been to a previous session, and thought it should be recorded.

It was a grand, robust session despite the colds now running through so many noses. JustanotherDave once again won the longest distance award for his long drive up from CT.

It was especially nice to have microphone weilding Raquel Maria Dillon from New Hampshire Public Radio there. She now has to distill 3+ hours of recording and interviews into a five minute space. She expects to have it on air in about three weeks at which time I will post the time and call letters as well as the website for those out of earshot of NHPR.

No, Jeri, it won't -- cuz it's not really a parody, just using the same tune and, of course, a line from the chorus (which makes you want to think it's a parody).

Good session and with less than usual dinner hour background noise. I think a lot of people were being specifically quiet (not with 'tween song comments, which are definitely encouraged!) but with things like slamming rest room doors, etc. probably because of Raquel's microphone's presence. But it didn't change the dynamics of the session, which is good.

Thanks, Just Another Dave, for doing "Survivor's Leave" -- really appropriate in the current situation:

    "Oh, there's got to be a reason to heal all the hurts and lesions,

Sorry Kendall, $140 isn't going to get that guitar away from me.

Brett, I suspect you've been doing something folkies aren't known for - practicing. Guitar playin' sounded good!

Thanks, Jeri. I have to confess that I have actually been playing my guitar since I began to perk up. But there is a lot to be said for playing among forgiving friends too.

And if you take that guitar with you to Guam, we'll be expecting virtuosity on your return. Who's organising the going away party?

Tom and Linn, That was an excellent sesion last Saturday. Next time I won't make plans so I can stay until the end.

Thanks, Hutch. Now its time for you to stop being a "guest." Sign on and join the family you're already part of -- Tom
