London Sea Shanty Collective

We’re the London Sea Shanty Collective, a community choir who sing shanties and maritime songs with one eye to the tradition and the other to the future.

“Absolutely spectacular … a real treat” —PEER Gallery, Hoxton

“Keep on keeping the shanties alive for all” —Audience member

“A brilliant performance – the highlight of our trip” — American visitors

A huge thank you for another fantastic performance and workshop…a fantastic day enjoyed by all!” – The Cutty Sark, Royal Museums Greenwich

We perform regularly in London and across the UK and Ireland and have sung in community spaces, theatres, pubs, bars, care homes, ships’ decks, piers, the British Museum and the British Library…
