Sea Stories - The Kaptayanos

In celebration of the Tall Ships arriving in Greenock next weekend, we're going to have a wee selection of shanties, superstitions and fish stories for this month.

First up is a brand new recording from local band Ard Amas. The spoken word piece was researched and written by Ross Ahlfeld and concerns the sinking of The Kaptayanos (not to be confused with The Captayannis, the much more famous "sunken sugar ship")

Ard Amas is a band made up of staff and volunteers from Inverclyde Community Development Trust, and they will be selling their cd at Tall Ships Inverclyde as well as performing on Monday 11 July. "The Kaptayanos" features Dave Robinson on vocals and was engineered by John Joyce.
