Irish and Scots trad singer/bodhran/pennywhistle (Irish flute… some day! Got the flute, just need to get… better… at … whistle!!!!). I know a lot of sea chanteys/shanties. Like, a LOT. Range high soprano (head) down to high/mid bary (chest), so the shantyman bit works fine. (Hence the moniker I use when working Faires… Arrrrh) Previously living aboard a sailboat and heading to the Caribbean for a few years, got shaghaied to Fort Myers, FL (but still a sailor, in fact should at this point be a Master’s 100T). Sing anything from Gregorian chants through opera, funk and Soca if I can’t get sea shanties or trad ;-) Stan Rogers has joined the Gods. Gordon Bok is an international treasure, so is Briege Murphy and so are Mary Black and June Tabor and Maddy Pryor and the Wailin’ Jennys. But so are so many others: the world is so very full of music and musical genii, if we only listen!
