North Cape have been singing acapella shanties and sea songs in harmony since 1995. They perform all over their native Poland and have won prizes at several national competitions. This will be their second visit to Harwich after a gap of a few years and we are very pleased to welcome them back.
The Felix Stowaways are making the arduous crossing over the waters of Harwich Harbour once again, to take part in their favourite festival. Following on from their visit to The Netherlands last year to sing at a Dutch style ShantyCafe, they are bringing the format to the UK and hosting their own ShantyCafe in their hometown in April.
Two solo singers from Kent who pair up to perform a wide range of nautical songs and shanties at our Festival. Expect an interesting mix of maritime music and a wealth of seafaring knowledge.
Inner State are now a familiar sight at our festivals.
This year Andy and Christine will be Inner State as Hilda and Erik, Viking Invaders, up at the Redoubt Fort on Saturday. Come and see their 30 minute Street Theatre or watch as they stroll, via a Viking Longship, along the Quayside all day Sunday.
