    Really enjoyed your collaboration with Chor Leoni in Vancouver recently. I’m part of a local shanty group (instigators, more than performers), and we all attended together, coming home with so much think about. At the pre-show talk, someone asked about shanties about women. Look for a young group called Seo Linn, singing Oro Se do Bheatha Bhaile (sounds like a minor-key version of Drunken Sailor) which is a great chorus song, with one version in praise of an Irish “Pirate” Queen.
