I can’t say that I saw this coming... Sea shanties are your soundtrack of 2021. Seriously — CNN ...even with being in the auxiliary of a punky celtic/ska band that has been throwing this sort of thing into their musical gumbo for quite some time. Who knew? It remains to be seen if this brings a new lease on life for old time sailing balladry, or if it will be fad of the season, sort of like how bluegrass had its 15 minutes in the wake of Oh Brother, Were Art Thou? But of course, the Sex Pistols(well, Steve Jones) was all over this a long time ago.... You all remember the swing revival? Maybe rock will be cool again in 2029.
