"Diverse, well researched, and presented with The Boarding Party's striking blend of voices, the songs on this album will absorb all who listen to the call of the sea."

-Mia Gardiner

Tis Our Sailing Time, originally released on Folk-Legacy Records in 1983, was the first album from The Boarding Party, a group of shanty-singers based in Washington, D.C. Comprised of five voices, The Boarding Party offer impeccable, flowing vocal performances of shanties and maritime songs, some of which have seldom, if ever, been recorded. In addition to their singing, the group also meticulously researched the songs presented, letting their deep knowledge of the shanties and their history help guide their performance. Much of this research can be read in the album's liner notes.
