Hull Shanty Festival 2011

Posted: July 22, 2011 in Uncategorized

A busy weekend is coming up as I’m guesting with Liam Robinson at The Hull Shanty Festival. We’ve got a number of scheduled spots spread over the weekend (concerts and leading singarounds) and they’re spread about the city at some of the five venues that are participating.

A good proportion of the repertoire that we’ll be performing are songs gleaned and learned from Lincolnshire sources / relating to Lincolnshire, but will have some more well known shanties thrown in too. I’ll be singing accompaniments to Liam and playing hand percussion (spoons, bones, dancing doll). I might even take my cornet along.

So, if you’re not up to much and fancy a listen, a sing, or just somewhere warm with a good beer (and some noisy so-and-sos in cable knit jumpers), then come on over to Hull.
