We are a Dartmouth based shanty band who have been described as being four old fools and a drink problem. This is strange because a lot of the time there are only the three of us! We combine traditional sea songs and humour with high energy performances probably quite dangerous in people of our age!
Since being formed in 2008 the band has gone from strength to strength. Alister, Richard and Mike are occasionally joined by Michel Lemoigne, an amazing percussionist from Brittany who has travelled the world following the weird and the wonderful in music (oh, he’s also a pretty accomplished traditional shipwright as well).
Our music is the songs and tunes about the sea. As a band we live near it, we use it for our living and leisure and have our family history entwined with it. However we do try not to take ourselves too seriously!
Performance times are to be found in the full Festival Programme.
