Adaptable Sea Shanties - Violin
Adaptable Quartets: Sea Shanties - Bass

The resurgence of the Sea Shanty as a cultural phenomenon in 2020 was a perfect flashpoint for this collection of 16 well-known and re-discovered shanties (in the trio book) and expanded to 21 (in the quartet book). Arranger Tyler Arcari uses his experience at writing flexible music that works to bring these new additions to your adaptable library. Playable with as little as three musicians (in the trio book) or four musicians (in the quartet book) or expandable to an entire concert ensemble; these Shanties bring a whole new meaning to the phrase “All Hands on Deck”. The Adaptable Ensemble Series has become a well-established resource for chamber music and this new edition is in top “shipshape” order.
