Chris Roche

Chris Roche has been singing shanties for probably more years than he cares to remember being a founder member of The Shanty Crew on the Cutty Sark back in 1973. He has a huge love for the sea and shanty tradition and an extensive knowledge of the subject but is certainly not just an armchair shantyman having sailed many times on tall ships and been around Cape Horn several times. This year he will be giving a talk about tackling that particular challenge from the East.
