Committed to keeping alive their home town and their nation's rich maritime heritage, they dress in period costume and put their songs back on to the decks of the tall ships or into the dockside taverns where they rightfully belong; splicing together hard-bitten, hard-sung work shanties with gentle forebitters & heartbreaking laments delivered with pathos.
Their interaction with their audience makes every performance unique and when not playing high profile events such as The Tall Ships Regatta and the Olympics or at corporate functions, they regularly enthral audiences in theatres, folk clubs, harboursides, pubs and festivals across the UK and Europe.
In 2014 they gained international recognition when they were presented with the "Stan Hugil Award" for the 'most authentic shanties' at the highly respected Krakow International Shanty Festival in Poland.
In between live appearances they have recorded 4 albums, all of which can be purchased, either as CDs from Shoppe or digitally from Downloads
These boys have now sailed many a voyage together and it shows in every note and gesture, with their jiggery - and indeed their pokery - widely known to be highly infectious.
They are described as "just sensational" by the BBC's Judi Spiers who is known to the crew as Sheila Blige.
