Sea Shanty Week!
Avast, me hearties - it's Sea Shanty Week! We'll swab the decks and learn work songs for sailors.
Hey, Kids Commuters!
It's the last week of Kids Commute for the 2020-2021 school year, and we're going to have some fun - with work songs!
These particular work songs are for sailors, called "sea shanties." A sea shanty is a song sung to a particular rhythm for specific work - hoisting a sail, pumping the bilge, etc.
Hear a terrific pile of Sea Shanties, and hear more from our friend Lee Murdock in our "Sea Shanty Singalong Soiree!" Click here to listen.
This week's MAYA MIX features all the music we heard this week, plus a lovely Lee Murdock rendition of "Red Iron Ore/The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" and the rest of La Nef's terrific "Sea Songs and Shanties" album!
