Arrrrrr! Avast, ye landlubbers, what’s ye cap’n pulled out o’ Davy Jones’ locker for all your entertainment?
As you might tell from one sentence where I’m pretending it’s International Talk Like A Pirate Day (not that anyone does outside the internet), after last month’s Epic Wanderlust… Returns set it all up, this time I’ve themed the show around my actual journey round England’s most southwesterly county, where all the pirates came from all those years ago. Visiting Tintagel, Boscastle, Looe, the Eden Project, Falmouth, Penzance and the Isles of Scilly, I’ve included one track or more for each that’s… rather loosely based upon what I saw or did there, but as ever, I’ve explained why you’re hearing what you’re hearing.
Particularly special this time round, though, is a HAMMER OF RETRIBUTION EXCLUSIVE. That’s right! Look back through my review of the adventure (or, at least, the first part) and you’ll see that I found myself in Falmouth right in the middle of the annual Sea Shanty festival. So I thought I’d include a taste of that experience – but not one of the “official” performances outside on Custom House Quay, no, that’s far too common. Instead, when I returned to the Seven Stars for a second pint of Grandma’s Weapons Grade Ginger Beer, I came across the Pirates of St. Piran, who were in the back room, singing boisterously. That’s them in the promo picture, by the way. I couldn’t not record one of their songs for the show, and I promised to spread their word far and wide… maybe they’ll do the same for me now. I guarantee you will not be hearing this performance anywhere else!
Now hoist the sails and get ready to plunder!
