STORY

SHANTIES FROM THE SEVEN SEAS

Sung by sailors to pass the time and ease the work, shanties pair simple melodies with lyrics as raucous and grandiose (and often as salty) as the sea itself. Born in 1906, a time when the decks and riggings still rang with these traditional songs, the author—last of the working shantymen—called the tunes on the high seas for 23 years, and spent the rest of his days performing, teaching and recording them for posterity. Comprising some 400 work songs, and rich with knowledge gleaned firsthand, this compendium is revered as “Stan’s Bible” by modern shanty singers and maritime historians alike. Collected by Stan Hugill. Paperback; 428 pages.
