Stephen Mills Posted January 29, 2004 Share Posted January 29, 2004 I read once a year to my daughters' grade school classes. This year, I thought I'd read a brief, highly illustrated version of Treasure Island. A good shanty on solo concertina might add some nice color. I see from some of your Interest entries that at least a couple of you play some of these. (New folks, please consider entering at least a little information for those of us nosy about our cohorts.) Any recommendations? I should say that I won't play Blow the Man Down or Sailor's Hornpipe, simply because I can't stand them. Drunken Sailor has just about the right atmosphere, but I'm afraid I'd get looked at askance because of the lyrics. Anyone know some that fairly reek of sea salt, even Hollywood's version of a shanty? (I probably will add a few bars of that grand old shanty, Gilligan's Island, for the teachers' benefit.)
