I have to confess, that I didn't know the difference between Sea Shanties and Forebitters. But I do now, because I found this really interesting thesis on the subject. https://etd.ohiolink.edu/!etd.send_file?accession=csu1439294062&disposition=inline

Folk music is a wonderful way of learning about our Social History......who we are and where we come from really.


If you read music, I'll happily send you some French pieces, or Arty will too, I'm sure.

If I can help, I certainly will.

Coo!  I'd not seen that thesis before.  Nice to have a scholarly view on the subject.  Many thanks.
