Friday Night Cat Fight Podcast

“Sloop John B”

This week’s Friday Night Cat Fight takes on a classic folk tune and shanty, “The Sloop John B.” It began as a Bahaman folk tune and was first recorded by archivist Alan Lomax in 1935. From there, groups like The Weavers, Kingston Trio and The Beach Boys made it a part of popular culture. Listen to all five versions of the “Sloop John B” that are in competition this week and vote for the one you dig the most.
