Sea Shanties - The Lyrics & History Of Sailor Songs

£9.99

People have been singing at sea since they first set sail and sea shanties still fascinate and entertain. Composed and performed by sailors to ensure the rhythmic operation of hauling and heaving tasks aboard huge merchant vessels, the songs also boosted camaraderiepositivity and motivation. Life at sea was harsh and relentless, and these songs brought some much-needed energy and humour.

This bountiful book brings together over 50 of the best-loved ballads and their fascinating history, alongside stunning black and white illustrations. This is the perfect gift for anyone wanting to delve into the magical maritime world of 'Wellerman' and beyond.

Hardback.
