The Wellington Wailers

Fresh from their outstanding performances at the International Sea Shanty Festival in Falmouth, the Wellington Wailers are now looking forward to returning to the Ropetackle stage to once again sing and perform shanties and songs of the sea in their inimitable style. Led by their irrepressible shantyman Mike Green, the Wailers will regale you with old favourites and new. With the new songs come some new members to the crew, chosen as much for their voices adding to the tapestry of harmonies the Wailers are renowned for, as their ability to buy a round in the pub.

Come one, come all to listen and join in to the choruses, for these songs hail from, or are influenced by, the work songs of the historic days of sail, when England ruled the waves and when sailors hauled the ropes, pushed the capstan and manned the pumps to the rhythmic sound of the shanty.

Music, seashanty
