About us

Our hometown is steeped in fishing and cockling industries, which has drawn us naturally to sea shanties, the sailors’ working songs. We love the story-telling aspect to shanty-singing and we are passionately committed to ensuring that these songs remain in the public domain and are not lost at sea!

The crew comprises of:

CAPTAIN DARLING – Responsible for whipping the motley crew shipshape.

GRACE DARLING – Steers the crew steady amidst the turbulent seas of bad harmonies and bum notes.

BABY DARLING – Keeps us all young at heart.

SHIVER ME TIMBERS DARLING – Possessor of a fiercely dry sense of humour, making us chuckle with her escapades and unique observations.

VIKING DARLING – The Nordic one, keeps us howling in laughter with her comic timing and acting skills.

DUTCH COURAGE DARLING – Historian and jack(ess?) of all trades: there is nothing this fine female cannot turn her hand to!

SKYLARKING DARLING – She sings like a bird and is always up to high jinks and hilarity!
