Victoria Nautical Song Circle

This selection will grow as time and information allows. Please feel free to contribute information about your favourite nautical music/artist, just e-mail them to me for probable inclusion on the site. Try to follow whatever format appears here. Feel free to briefly describe them, and as well as what recordings they may have, send along information about publications, usual or home venue if such, web sites and e-mail if they have it out in public.

I've received a number of requests, literally from 'round the world for the Irish Rovers LP/tape/CD(haven't seen one yet) of "Tallships and Salty Dogs". It appears it is out of print and has not been re-released on CD. I'm writing to Attic Records as it was on Potato/Attic as can be seen below in the listings. I would encourage you to do the same if you wish to have it released on CD.
