While wiring up a new FX processor in my studio I was messing around with this classic traditional sea shanty. Probably because at this time last week I was playing at the Harwich (UK) International Sea Shanty Festival. Anyway, while messing around…read more

@valsvil - Just me. No, I lied. There was also a bottle of rum involved.

Is this all you? In any case impressive vocals!

I had another version of this Stan Rogers tune up here before. But I recently decided to invest in some nice plugins for my recording setup (IZotope). I used this tune as a learning project and it came out so much better than what I had before…read more

Someone needs to take the Dr’s prescription pad from him. I think Gobbels would appreciate this bold rewriting of history. Its sweep is asphyxiating

I love it! Let’s keep them all honest.

We have a few “TALL TALE TELLERS” in our midst right now.

Styled after the classic sea songs of yesteryear, here's a salt-flavored ballad about an old orange-haired pirate who's proud of his big "shillelagh", who abuses women, who wreaks havoc among travelers from many nations, and who sinks perfectly…read more

Pretty awesome!!! How did I miss this!!!!

Where I live, International Women's Day is a big holiday and has been for decades. I write in a genre where the traditional songs are pretty much BY men, FOR men, and ABOUT men. If they're about women, it's a certain sort o' wimmen, if you gets…read more

Love this! The pipes bring the perfect melancholy to the lovely melody and visual lyrics

You got the touch Robert! This is an outstanding tale put to song.

Yar aughta post em wurds, ya scurvy dawgs!

I set out to make this lyric a sea shanty, but it didn't work. So it became more of a bluesy Negro Spiritual type song (if it's not a social faux pas to name that genre that way these days). This will not be the final cut of the song. I was…read more

My feet are tapping! You got my attention with this one too.

I’m wondering how your folk festival adventure in England went. How about posting a vocal interview here ? Give us the high lights.

This nonsense rhyme by English poet Edward Lear is one of my earliest childhood memories. I've kind of turned it into a slightly piratical sounding sea shanty. I hope Mr. Lear would not take it amiss. ![a photo](http://www.robertpalomo.com…

I’m 100% sure that way more people like (or even love) your music than you will ever know. Most people who listen to it on the Internet simply don’t Feedback, because - who is not always in a hurry these days?

Anyways, I think you are an extremely talented folk musician, and you write and perform very nice, catchy songs.

I played this in Harwich, Essex England at an informal gathering of festival artists and local maritime music enthusiasts and they loved it. For me to get to play that song in that place for such people and have them like it was one of the greatest of many great experiences I’ve had playing music over the years.

Outstanding Robert! You truly have created your own sound and fit it perfectly to Edward Lear.

I'm invited to play at Moscow's Banjofest next month. I decided to do a clawhammer banjo set, as nobody much is playing that style over here. I'm recording backing tracks so I can play the tunes with a virtual band, and this mix of this old traditional…read more

Another Masterpiece! I’m laughing out loud. You got the touch Robert!

Thickened from my original concept of banjo and voices only. I may still like that version more, but the big shanty choir I perform with wanted to do it and I needed to arrange it with parts for banjo AND accordion (!!!) plus a whistle. No bass…read more

Butt-kickng classic style rock-n-roll for the New Resistance. Acerbic sociopolitical criticism a la CS&N that will no doubt piss some people off. So be it. ![a photo](http://www.robertpalomo.com/img/songart/henchman-song-art-300x300.jpg)
