    fun you had and even more impressed by the quality of the singing It s been just a thoroughly enjoyable time Ed St Giles Film Director Channel 4 TV Absolutely brilliant Justin Leigh Presenter BBC Spotlight South West The Exmouth Shanty Men Guardians of Tradition At the very beginning of the performance you felt transported to a sailing boat of the start of the 19th century The energy of the team work environment is clearly depicted by the Shanty Men so that through their songs they reveal their loves their fears their deepest feelings The music has the power of overcoming time language and context to communicate something deeper and it has been used this way over very many years worldwide What this performance reminded me of are all the songs that make repetitive actions easier to bear and also transmit knowledge and teamwork Human nature is the same everywhere we share it and this makes the shanty men able to last over time With a commitment to keep tradition and knowledge alive theirs is a must see performance Tico Altahona Colombian guest reviewer for Lympstone Entertainments Drumbeat Only real enthusiasts with a love for sea songs and shanties could put on such an entertaining and varied show Jez Lowe Internationally acclaimed folk singer songwriter Another smashing Guest Night was provided by The Exmouth Shanty Men with another capacity crowd gracing the portals of the Dolphin Hotel I have to admit that I had not heard them live before though I had heard their recordings so to say that I was surprised by their presence in the flesh as it were is not quite true as I should have expected it from all I had heard about them But what stood out was the effortless professionalism coupled with an infectious joie de vivre from a group who are basically amateur they put so many professional outfits well into the shade Their choice of songs the variety of their presentation and their musical performance could not be faulted Peter Hilary Organisers Jurassic Folk Club Beer What a fantastic bunch of guys The Exmouth Shanty Men are At Navy Days we asked them to come and give us a couple of a haa s but they ve given us far more than that They kicked off our live broadcast to 23 countries on BFBS Radio in true sea shanty style Thank you so much and I hope this is the start of a beautiful relationship Ernie Rowe Head of British Forces Broadcasting Service Radio UK I think The Exmouth Shanty Men are very entertaining and humorous without losing the traditional feel to these songs and shanties which are such an important part of our heritage Jim Mageean Folk singer known world wide as Shanty Jim Pusser s Rum have just comemorated the 40th anniversary of the Black Tot and couldn t have done it without the help of The Exmouth Shanty Men who put in a quite fantastic performance in Portsmouth Historic

    who felt more at ease holding an oar or a capstan in their hands than a pen Songs of the sea written under sail reflect their creators some are as rough as a teak board others as gentle as sunset on a flood tide with lyrics of surprising wisdom spliced onto evocative salty tunes Shanties were work songs written to get men to pull together so that the job in hand would go easier Forebitters were diversionary songs sung to ease the mind and make a hard life tolerable They usually had fixed texts telling a coherent story whereas shanties often included whatever words floated into the shantyman s head in the course of the job They were made up of scraps and might be expanded to 40 verses or cut to 4 according to the task in hand As to the singers some would add plenty of embellishments or hitches as the crew called them others sang undecorated Some sang with free hardly measurable rhythm others were bang on the beat Apart from the crew joining in the choruses with gusto and singing full and plain and regular in order to pull together there were no rules Some were sung in harmony most were not As so few rules exist Shanties and Forebitters are virtually indestructible They can withstand any treatment and abuse except the genteel and the quaint Historically shanties were usually not sung ashore Today they are performed as popular music Shanty choirs often large choral groups that perform only sea shanties are popular in Europe particularly Poland and the Netherlands but also countries such as Germany and Norway In English speaking countries sea shanties are comparatively less popular as a separate genre and tend to be performed by smaller groups as folk music rather than in
