Sailor Song : The Shanties and Ballads of the High Seas

Gerry Smyth - author, Jonny Hannah - illustrator.

Passed down the generations and sung as working songs, sea shanties tell the compellinghuman stories of life on the water: hard labour, battling the elements, pining for distant loves and far away homes. The music's rhythms are designed to galvanise the group effort of heaving, pushing and pulling to weigh anchor, wind rope around a capstan , or set sail.

In this book , acclaimed shanty devptee, Gerry Smyth, presents the background to each shanty, alongside musical notation.
