Restless sea

About this resource

This song would work well when combined with Strange Cargo. Perhaps played at the start of a lesson on the Middle Passage with Strange Cargo used after looking at other sources on the Transatlantic Slave Trade.


Song:  Folk, sea shanty ballad style about the transportation of slaves in the past.

Visuals: Historical images over dreamy seascapes.



Lead vocal : Mercy Matthewman
Fiddle : Tom Deam
