Maritime Folk Songs: from the Collection of Helen Creighton

Helen Creighton collected maritime songs remembered by an older generation of Canadians, mainly from Nova Scotia, between 1928 and 1954. Many are home recordings, but what they may lack in quality they make up for in authenticity. In addition to songs of the sea, the unaccompanied singers tell of the supernatural, of love and the beauties of the land.
