St Ives Shanty Shout offers an unforgettable weekend of sea shanty singing, from some of the best groups in the land, over the weekend of 23/24 November. Now in its third year, the event, hosted by Bamaluz Bootleggers, with sponsorship from local businesses, the 2018 shout will feature more than 20 groups (including the legendary Kimbers Men travelling down from Yorkshire) singing at multiple venues in the town. These include the Castle Inn, Golden Lion, Surf Shack and Pilchard Press, all within easy walking distance of each other. Hoping to make a return this year are: ACapella Moonshine, Aggie Boys Choir, Bamaluz Bootleggers, Bencoolan Wreckers, Bone Idol (Scilly Boys), Bryher's Boys, Cadgwith Singers, Cape Cornwall Singers, Du Hag Owr, Falmouth Shout, Kimber's Men, Nauti Buoys, Oggymen, Pirates Of St Piran, Rum And Shrub, Stamp And Go, Stuns'ls, The Two Anchors, Thraw'd Together plus other new groups. Entry to all the venues is free, so show your support by drinking their beer while you listen to shanty groups with a diverse range of sizes and styles. Whether you like your singers in civvies, dressed as sailors or even pirates there will be something special for you. This year the event's nominated charity is Cornwall Air Ambulance and its New Heli Appeal. For more information, visit or check out the event’s Facebook page.

Web Site
We have used some of the money from our first festival to purchase Shanty UK our own web space .

Some of our members are performers so we have put up pages for them so you can see who they are. There is a full listing of all our members and other information about the organisation in our private Members area.
We have started to build a song writers area. The aim is to share new material to get it to the widest possible audience. If you are writing songs about the sea or trades and lifestyles associated with it and want to have them included please get in touch with us.

The latest exciting development 'SHANTYPEDIA' an archive of Shanties and Maritime song is well under way. We have words, midi files, sheet music and clips of performance. The site should provide you with all the information you need to learn and perform a song. Rome wasn't built in a day so keep coming back as we will be adding new material all the time.

There is information about how to join Shanty UK on the site, or if you are interested in membership just drop us an email from the site and we will get back to you .

Our aim is to promote and preserve Maritime Music.
Please help raise the profile by linking to our site.
If you have information about performers or events that we do not have listed please let us know.
