Album Notes
Alison Lee Freeman is a 21st century chantey singer with an extraordinary voice easily heard over gale force winds. She grew up in Bath, the City of Ships, where sea chanteys are a part of the musical curriculum. Shipbuilding is the past and present at the mouth of Maine’s Mighty Kennebec River. In 1607 Maine’s first ship, the Virginia, was built by the Popham Colony before the settlers gave up and returned to England in 1608. Today the Bath Iron Works builds destroyers for the US Navy and the Maine Maritime Museum offers visitors a journey back in time. History is alive in these songs, please sing along!

I heard your song, "Alison's Saab Story," on Car Talk. "What a song!" I said. "What a voice!" - Brian Daley

Alison Lee Freeman takes the stage without question, then engages her audience with a powerful, beautiful voice and passion she holds for her sea chanties and original songs. Alison presents a performance that is robust, educational and -- most importantly -- ENTERtaining! She's NOT your usual fare...but haven't we had just about enough of 'the usual'? - Martin Swinger

Her warm and engaging stage presence, great voice, great material, and her genuine enthusiasm for traditional songs was a highlight of the festival and a real treat for our weekly folk club. Wonderful to have met and heard her performance! - Caroline Clarke, Member of Board of the St. John's Folk Arts Council in Newfoundland


to write a review

ALison's voice was beautiful, and, most importantly for sea chanteys, her diction was excellent so that the lyrics were easily understood.

The selections were a well chosen mix of familar songs with a leavening of the less well known.
