Heave Away Me Jollies is a traditional sea chantey from Newfoundland.

The joyful rollicking feel of the chantey lends itself to the hand claps and foot stomps included in the choral arrangement. They should be performed with gusto and spirit! During the instrumental sections, feel free to improvise and embellish with added choreography such as adding step dancing or Irish jig style dance set in front or to the side of the choir. Be sure to end the piece with a powerful accented “Heeyah!


Available in SATB, TBB, 3 pt mixed and 2 pt.
