In summary, today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day and many are celebrating with songs and poems related to pirates. One group, the Pyrates Royale, has a large selection of their songs available online. However, some are having trouble finding quality audio and torrents are not working well. In London, they are celebrating "walk like a pirate day" on the Fulham Road. Happy Pirate Day, mateys!

I heard this group at a renaissance festival in Maryland a while ago. The Pyrates Royale. Below are a couple of selections available on the web including an hour and a half session. Some drinking songs, some bawdy or irreverent ones some humorous.

"Old Maui" a whaler ballad


"Polly on the Shore"


"A Pirate's Toast" a poem reading


The hour-and-a-half session. The audio is a bit weak but a large selection of their songs.
