Dem Bones Dem Bones

Erik Ilott Sings and Plays Bones to 'Sally Brown'
Shipshape CD Cover


Rhythm Bones have long been associated with the sea and the maritime. For a good article on this, read 'Bones at Sea' by Tim Reilly in online newsletters, RBP, Vol 5, Nos 1 and 2. Erik Ilott is a true shantyman, and listening to this song, you almost feel as if you are on-board and at sea. He plays three bones in each hand in a very unique style.
