This is the website of Richard Adrianowicz. One of my main interests is traditional songs of the sea. I recorded my first solo shanty CD in 2002 after which Peter Kasin and I formed a duet and recorded four albums (Boldly From the Westward, Cast off each Line, With Shipmates All Round, and We'll Haul and Sing Together).

What does Walkashore mean? Courtesy of the late Cyril Tawney, a walkashore refers to a method of passing from ship to shore and back again without the need of a boat, even if the ship isn't alongside. It's usually a series of pontoons and it's generally only used if the ship in question is at a fairly permanent berth.
