We are a male voice group singing evocative traditional songs of the sea, laced with adventure, peril and regret. And of course lively shanties! We are based in Bedfordshire and Milton Keynes. We perform in many venues including pubs (of course), festivals, museums, community days, and charitable events. We even have some special Christmas songs to mix in at that time of year! We are a friendly, lively and engaging bunch and  bring a dash of ‘derring-do’ to our performances.

Please contact us on our email if you think we can add our derring-do to your event!

Like everybody else we have had all our programmed appearances cancelled for this season. We thought of hiring a flotilla of row boats (one for each of us) and singing to the distant seashore … but then again! We have decided to leave what would have been our full list up just so we can peek at it from time to time to remind ourselves what a great year it would have been.

Spring 2021 sees the crew preparing to set sail on another voyage. We’re practicing our drills, getting our jabs,  re-proofing our sou’westers, and stowing away large barrels of rum. When the conditions are just right we will be back up on stage around the country.
