Let's get our shanty on! We are rounding out shanty month with a super fun interview with the always game Captain Tom Kastle, historian, author, singer, actor, captain of Great Lakes schooners, and raconteur.
In this interview, we cover the history and different types of shanties that are sung around the world, with examples! Tom tells us how to train like a shanty singer, why you should always pack a book, and how everyone needs to have a party piece. Oh, and Tugboat is a great nickname.
You can find Tom Kastle at www.tomkastle.com and on Facebook.
