We think we play good-time music even if shanties do sometimes deal with serious matters like shipwrecks and such. Many shanties have good rousing choruses so we always get the audience to join in whenever possible and they always say they enjoy this.
We can perform indoors or out, amplified or unplugged and have played in Folk Clubs, Festivals and pubs. We can easily put together a program for a party or corporate event. We often provide live music for events at shopping malls and markets.
Our repertoire includes traditional music, contemporary pieces and original compositions by the band members. At least half of our songs are unaccompanied plus some with instrumental accompaniment and some instrumental tunes.
The three members are Chris Turpin, Ted Shaw and Allan Allsopp; we all sing, in three- part harmony and between us we play guitar, bass, ukulele, harmonica and bodhran.
