The Story of H.M.S. Shannon

Top of page

A lively touch to any program, this song story describes an incident in the War of 1812. Colourful drawings give a satirical twist to the engagement between a British ship, the H.M.S. Shannon, and an American ship, the U.S.S. Chesapeake. Sung to guitar accompaniment by Canadian folksinger Tom Kines.
