Show Notes

We're back with another special live episode, recorded in front of an audience at St. John's Church as part of the Connecticut Sea Music Festival.  Our guests this time are David Jones and Joseph Morneault. 

David is a stalwart of the shanty scene in the North East US, moving there from London in 1965 and becoming deeply involved with the NYC folk music scene. He sings solo and with many acts including The Starboard List, The Bermuda Quadrangle, Poor Old Horse, and The New York Packet.

Jos. is the founder and president of the Connecticut Sea Music Festival. He's also a social historian and performs with groups such as The Jovial Crew. His focus is on bringing to life early American songs relating to the everyday person: work songs, songs of the sailor, drinking songs, songs of love and consequences, ballads, and introspective songs.
