Hoy Shanty Crew

The Hoy Shanty Crew have been entertaining appreciative audiences around the UK for many years and are known for their rousing and raw interpretations of traditional sea shanties and drinking songs. Their extensive repertoire also includes a number of local songs written by founder member Jack Forbes, best known for penning “Rolling Down the River”. 

Goldhanger Shanty Crew

Based unsurprisingly in the Blackwater estuary village of Goldhanger, the Goldhanger Shanty Crew evolved out of the local choir following a sea-themed concert in 2017 and have been rantin’ an’ roarin’ in the Chequers Pub ever since. This will be their second appearance at Harwich.
