11.50-12.35, Stage 1 • Friday
She Shanties have been singing up a storm for the last six years performing at festivals, concerts and folk clubs throughout Britain and beyond. They are particularly at home on board a boat or hanging around the beer tent at a festival...Their 12 voices blend together with strength and energy to give an uplifting sound to the shanties you may, or may not, know so well. Their 2015 EP Spanker Boom was well received in the folk scene courting strong reviews and they have an album in the pipeline in 2017.
'Striking a wonderfully fresh balance between ebullience and enterprise, conveying both the energy of the driven worksong and the natural harmonising potential of the material.'Dave Kidman – Living Tradition.
