“Blow the Man Down” #Music

Download “Blow the Man Down” Mp3

You probably know this tune, but did you know it’s an English sea shanty from the 1800s and possibly earlier? I heard it as a child and wanted to include it in my sea-themed pieces.

Here, the Ocean Drum plays its wave sound, as well as rhythm beats. Melody and harmony are both played on alto recorder, with ukulele accompaniment.

I hope this brings a smile to your face! ☺️

  1. Hi, Crystal, the download link for this song doesn’t seem to work. I got an error that said the file couldn’t be found. But I was able to play it with the audio player. I thought you should know. I don’t think I’ve ever heard this song, and I enjoyed your rendition.
