Hank Cramer - The Shantyman

Hank Cramer - The Shantyman

  • $14.99

Hank Cramer does it again with his album, The Shantyman. A compilation of our favorite sea shanties, maritime ballads and nautical tunes. A shantyman refers to the character who led worksongs aboard tall ships in the age of sail. He didn't need a lovely voice (though Hank certainly could have fooled us!), as the songs weren't solely for entertainment. They were meant to keep the crew in time as they worked the halyards, sheets, braces, capstan, windlass and pumps. Give this album a listen, and we bet that it'll also inspire you to tap your toes or even get dancing a bit.
