She Shanties are a women’s shanty crew who first came together at Whitby Folk Week in 2011. We launched at a stranding at St Mary’s Lighthouse, Whitley Bay that December. The audience arrived just as the tide was coming in and we sang for 4 hours until it went out again and we were safe to leave. All followed up with fish and chips and more singing. In May 2012, we made our festival debut at Shepley Spring Festival, where concerts included the traditional concert, with some well known faces (and voices!) and a midnight spot on the beer tent stage, which was raucous, to say the least. We also appeared on Two Valleys Radio, you can hear our radio slot here:


Our 12-strong crew are based all over the UK, but we come together for concerts and festivals. If you want to know more, or want to get in touch, you can do so at one of the links below:
