Shanna Franklin is the leader and songwriter of Tea and Strumpets. They’re a relatively new group, but rising fast on the Pirate and Ren Faire scenes.
Somewhere between vocal group and musical theater, they’ve got a load of great original bawdy songs and choreography. We dig into why Shanna got the group together and how demand for their show has picked up.
Heads up… This episode, by nature, has a little bawdy talk in it. If you’ve got kids with you, maybe listen later. Or be prepared to discuss. 🙂
Under The Crossbones is a podcast all about pirate culture.
