miss.vinyl #decemberrecordaday Day 28: Water... Made this one specifically so I could post this album, but I figured "Sea Shanties" might not be part of everyone's collection!

The X Seamen's Institute Sings At The South Street Seaport .

Blurb from the front "A hundred years ago seamen sang at their work, and on the forecastle head in the dog watches, and in sailors pubs ashore. Chanties were sung and ships serenaded each other as late as 1907"

Blurb from the back "Since 1969 every summer Tuesday evening at 7pm, whenever sky's are clear, the sounds of sea chanties have been rising from the South Street Seaport pier in in New York City. The singers are four lovers of salty songs sung by sailormen when square riggers sailed out of South Street. They are Bernie Klay, Frank Woerner, John Townley, and Dan Aguiar, known collectively as the X Seamens Institute. They are assisted by 300 to 500 people who gather to listen and join in on the chanty choruses." . #xseamensinstitute #southstreetseaport #folkways #seashanties #seachanties #folkwaysrecords #smithsonianfolkways #seaportmuseum #southstreetseaportmuseum #southstreet #seachanty #seashanty #seamen #sailor #nowspinning #vinyl #vinylporn #vinyljunkie #instavinyl #vinyllife #ilovevinyl #dustyfingers #cratedigging #cratedigger #vinylcommunity #vinylsocialclub #vinylcollection #recordcollection #onevinylcommunity

  •   miss.vinyl @farawayplace When I was posting I was actually thinking there must be some people out there in the IG world who actually saw them!! That's really cool!! 14h
  •   farawayplace I actually talked to one of the guys in the group after the show. I think he was pleased that a kid (I was about 13 or 14 at the time) was interested in that music 14h
  •   miss.vinyl I'm sure he was! That's awesome. I have a similar reaction from older folks when talking to them about Bluegrass! Haha they always seem half surprised/half extremely pleased. @farawayplace 13h
  •   seaportmuseum It's been a while, but we do miss those sweet sounds every summer Tuesday! 12h
  •   miss.vinyl @seaportmuseum Hi! Very cool! I'm sure it was a great time 12h

evasaysmeow When it's too hot outside, the only appropriate order of business for the day is binge reading while relieving childhood memories by eating giant bowls of sea shantys. #read #reading #matthewreilly #area7 #seashanty #seashantys #food #summer #sunday 1w

localpeanut #secondlife #sl #virtuallife #sad #virtualworld #virtualreality #song #folksong #americanclassic #music #river #seashanty #ballad The setting is a small waterfall tumbling into a lake in Second Life. This song is "O Shenandoah" and was played on the second-to-last episode (during the death of a key character) of "The Newsroom", an HBO series I have been following for the last 3 years. The song tells the tale of Sally, the daughter of the Indian Chief Shenandoah, who is courted for seven years by a white Missouri river trader. You can hear my favorite vocalist, Hayley Westenra's version of this American classic at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQY3rcgaZBI 2w
