She Shanties

 Thursday 17 October, 8pm (doors 7pm)



£16 (+ booking fee)

With Grace Petrie

To say that She Shanties stand out as an all-female shanty group is to state the obvious, but their northern accents also stand out in a genre dominated by a certain Cornish shanty group.


With up to a dozen singers weaving intricate harmonies on traditional songs, they create an impressive wall of sound. Their unaccompanied and unembellished singing lets their emotionally-loaded subjects stand centre stage.  


Recommended for age 14+

“This is what folk is all about - a group of women with a shared passion for singing and songs, getting together to make music with their voices and have some fun." - EDS (EFDSS Magazine)
