SOUNDS OF THE SEA

The ever-popular Exmouth Shanty Men

Shantymen

Devon’s favourite “buoy band”, The Exmouth Shanty Men, return to Lympstone Village hall on Saturday 9 May.  They plan to take us on a long trip – to Australia and back, with rollicking sea shanties and an exploration in song of some topics close to sailors’ hearts: beer perhaps, the fairer sex for sure and some heroes from past deck lore.

Since they saw us last, the lads have been on a few trips themselves, to France, Belgium and Holland to sing at maritime festivals – and to Krakow in Poland, where they were honoured to win the Stan Hugill trophy for the most authentic shanties. They have found themselves on national television both here and overseas and have made two more albums .

The crew will have all its four “North Exmouth” members on board: anchorman Tony Day, David “Dai” Wright (ship’s doctor), new cabin boy Ian Herbert and the gracious Lady Helen Highwater (Heather Redding).

For an early taste of their talent, visit http://www.exmouthshantymen.com where you can see clips.
