Sea Songs: Louis Killen, Stan Hugill and the X Seamen's Institute sing of Cape Horn sailing at the Seattle Chantey Festival

Featuring the voices of noted English folksingers and “shantymen” Stan Hugill and Lou Killen, Sea Songs is a celebration of maritime work songs. The term shanty (sometimes spelled chantey or chanty) refers to a specific style of work song belonging to 19th century sailing maritime traditions. This album, released in 1979, captures the spirit of the music residing within the hearts of those dedicated to its preservation.
