If you watched any old pirate movies you’d get the gist of the atmosphere on a sailing ship over the centuries. Barrels of rum music and singing to keep morale up on those long voyages. Especially during the heavy duty manual labour tasks. That’s when the Sea Shanties were born.
Have you seen a Scottish singers sea shanty go global?
Then this way. It’s called The Wellerman by Airdrie postman Nathan Evans and it’s crazily catchy.
Maybe it’s reflective of the fact that we are all in lockdown around the world but the song exploded on the internet and this is REAL collaboration!
Of course because of the way Youtube works there’s a How to video for Sea Shanties so let us know how you get on! ⚓️⚓️⚓️
