Devil Dodgin’ on the High Seas
The James Craig Music Club featured the Forties, with the theme: “Devil Dodgin’ on the High Seas” – songs that mix the sea and religion, often irreverently. We borrowed a young Dan Kenny for the evening in Tom’s absence, and brought down our average age considerably!
We are as likely to convert an audience to religion as we are to shave our bellies with a rusty razor, and we used to say “In fact, none of us know what a razor is!” and maybe that’s still true of Dan. I was tempted to dress him up as a choir boy.
