Female Pirates and Songs of the Sea

Hosted by Niamh Parsons

Zoom codes from rioann@gmail.com

“It’s of a pretty female as you may understand,

Her mind being bent for rambling into some foreign land.

She dressed herself in sailor’s clothes or so it does appear,

And she hired with a captain to serve him for a year.”

All Welcome!
