2. THE TALE OF THOMAS NICKERSON, ©Brian Robertson, 2010, an epic ballad of 19 verses performed at the First Congregational Church of Chatham, Massachusetts for the 2011 Nickerson Annual Gathering.  The tune is adapted from the traditional Irish maritime song, The Flying Cloud.
Thomas Nickerson was the cabin boy aboard the whaler Essex, which was stove in and sunk by an enraged sperm whale in the central Pacific in 1819. The incident inspired Herman Melville to write the American classic novel Moby Dick, and the crew’s desperate voyage of survival in small whaling boats to the Chilean coast was portrayed in the recent movie In the Heart of the Sea.
