"This CD features 16 imaginatively arranged and performed songs that vividly bring to life a world of adventure, women, raucous drinking, brutally hard work and poetry. Highly recommended." www.new-classics.co.uk Sea Songs and Shanties. Sea songs didn't start out as music to be heard. They were songs to sing, songs to help with the work, songs to pass the time. These songs were spread by the oral tradition, resulting in many variations. Singers Nils Brown, Michiel Schrey, and Clayton Kennedy join Seán Dagher and La Nef in performing these songs with a new twist, while preserving their specific character and original appeal.
