Sea Songs and Chanteys

“I had become interested in sea lore and songs as a young musician. As a child growing on the water, I always loved sailing and imagined what life was like for those sailors in the past. Throughout my life as musician they have remained a mainstay of my musical expression. The images of the sailors fighting the elements and each other always intrigued me, and the songs I sing express the rich tradition of the sea and struck a chord in my musical life. There is nothing like being on a schooner under full sail with the wind and salt air in your face and singing “I thought I heard the Old Man say, there is work tomorrow but no work today…” “Sea Songs and Chanteys” was recorded in the studio of Limin music in Northport, Maine.” ~ Bob Stuart
