21. A Shanty Show Special: Chris Ricketts LIVE at the Fundy Sea Shanty Festival
Show Notes

In our first ever LIVE episode, we took the stage in front of the wonderful Fundy Sea Shanty Festival audience to sing some songs and chat all things shanty with UK singer-songwriter-shantyman Chris Ricketts. We hear all about how he first fell in love with shanties, his time performing on cruise ships, as well as his approach to arranging and song-writing that came to life most recently on his album Songs in the Key of Sea. Chris' self-deprecating sense of humour and beautiful singing voice helped make our first foray into live shows a roaring success, and we got tons of singing done too - enjoy!
