From the Library – Songs of the Sea and Seafaring

Pick­ing up yes­ter­day’s theme – which tied in with the Cale­don Library’s dis­cus­sion of Moby Dick – Radio Riel con­tin­ues today with a selec­tion of sea­far­ing songs: from tra­di­tion­al sea chanteys (as they are prop­er­ly called), some quite ancient, to clas­si­cal and Celtic pieces which evoke the sea, ships and those who sail in them. Today you’ll hear a wide selec­tion of items, from the whim­si­cal to the dead­ly seri­ous.

The pro­gramme today is pro­duced in con­junc­tion with the Cale­don Library, which is co-spon­sor­ing a Sto­ry Ses­sion tonight at the Falling Anvil, Cale­don Tam­ran­noch, enti­tled Jack Tars and Com­modores: Tales of the Sea and Sea­far­ing, from 5 – 8pm SLT. The event is spon­sored by the Cale­don Library, the Clan of Sea­far­ers and Sto­ry­tellers, and the Sto­ry­telling Guild.

• From the Library is pro­duced by Radio Riel in con­junc­tion with the Cale­don Library in Sec­ond Life. Today’s pro­gramme was pro­duced by Elrik Mer­lin.
