Here is our write up from their web page:

Shoreham’s sea shanty crew, “ The Wellington Wailers” can be guaranteed to make any occasion, they perform at a success

Six years ago, a small group of like minded sea dogs decided to resurrect the singing of traditional sea shanties, at The Sussex Yacht Club, in  Shoreham. They relocated to “The Duke of Wellington” pub once they learnt that they would be paid in beer for performing a monthly slot.

Since then the ships company has expanded. When fully manned, the Wailers can muster sixteen men, who have developed a natural close harmony.

Those old shanties had a serious purpose, encouraging the men to heave in time with the shanty man’s song. There is nothing serious about the Wailers delivery of the shanties. The emphasis is on humour, but with a good rousing sound. Audiences are encouraged to join in the choruses and participate in any shenanigans that the Wailers flamboyant captain may devise. Since their formation, The Wailers have performed at countless gigs, festivals, and charitable events, and most notably had tracks from their latest C.D. “High Tides and Low Life” played on Radio 2, by Mark Radcliffe.

THE NEXT FALMOUTH INTERNATIONAL SEA SHANTY FESTIVAL FOR 2020
IS 12 JUN 20 - 14 jUN 20.
