Still trying to decide Book of the Week

So here. Have a sea song.

Spanish Ladies, Black Irish Band


  • Another of my old camp songs. You didnt go to summer camp in the San Juan islands did you?

  • Moe_Lane says:

    Nah, I just do historical re-enactment. That means I get exposed to a lot of sea shanties and traditional music.

  • giddysinger says:

    Interesting. I had never heard the “American” version of this song until quite recently, and it still sounds a little odd to my ears. Need to find more stuff by this group, by the way.

  • Moe_Lane says:

    Really? I have a couple of versions of the American whaling version floating around. In fact, the version I heard first is about twice as slow as normal, which still makes all other versions sound slightly weird in my ear.

  • Fun! Yeah, we sang mostly sea shanties and folk music. (We learned the British version of this song) It will be interesting to see what others you post.
