An opera baritone pitches into sea shantiesmain
Berlin baritone Jake Muffett has recorded the Four Salt-Water Ballads by Frederick Keel, a rare addition to the shanty repertoire.
But shanties are going viral these days.
Jake says: I purchased a copy of this music over a year ago from a charity shop in Croydon and only very recently realised it was dated 1920 and signed by the composer himself!! A picture of this can be seen on the title page of the video, totally genuine!
