All those zoomer TikTok kids are acting like they discovered sea shanties, but real ones (old and Canadian) remember Great Big Sea.
@erinbee tangentially related joke:
How many ears does a Canadian folk singer have?
Three. A left ear, a right ear, and the last of Barrett's private ears.
@erinbee they were pretty good - different from my usual concerts. I didn't know what to expect; I'd never so much as seen a picture of them, and they were older than I had guessed just based on their voices.
I saw them in what I think was called the Sony or Nokia Theater in NYC. The strangest part of the show, and something that I hadn't experienced before or since - the volume was lower than I'm used to. I could hear everything crystal clear, but I could also talk to my wife right next to me, in the middle of a song, without shouting.
