REGINA -- Saskatchewan country music group the Hunter Brothers decided to get in on the sea shanty internet trend, in a video posted to their Twitter.
The five brothers put a Saskatchewan spin on the TikTok fad, singing their own sea shanty in a farm shop and banging on a wooden barrel for percussion.
"You asked, and we listened! We had lots of requests for a Sea Shanty, so we figured we’d put our twist on the trend," the Shaunavon-based band said in the tweet.
The trend began hitting social media in early 2021, as people across the internet posted videos of their own renditions of the songs that sailors in the 1800s often sang while hard at work.
