Ships Upon The Sea

Ships Upon the Sea

A wayfaring lot…music that touches on seafaring tragedies, punctuated by the loss of that most famous of them all: the HMS Titanic. This week’s show will focus on music that commemorated the ships that were lost at sea; tragedies that were headlines around the world; songs of the seafaring life and the sailors and crew that were a part of it.  The stories are told in songs from the wells of tradition. We’ll hear from Frank Hutchison, Papa Harvey Hull, Pink Anderson, The Dillards and Dan Zanes. We’ll also hear some classic maritime music from the Smithsonian catalogs. Blues, country, folk, and so much more…all celebrating those ships upon the sea and the ones we lost along the way.
