Sunday Morning Sea Shanties
Sunday 27th June 2021, 11:30 – South Beach, Lowestoft
Come along for some Sunday morning sea shanties as we prepare to wave off the Beach of Dreams walkers as they embark on their coastal trek. The much-loved local crew, The Lowestoft Longshore Men, and all-female shanty singers, The Silver Darlings (hailing from Southend-on-Sea, close to where the Beach of Dreams walk will end), join forces to entertain us with traditional sea shanties. What better way to encapsulate the sounds of the summer beach, than with the heart-warming songs of the folks of the sea!
The Lowestoft Longshoremen were formed twelve years ago when a group of like-minded individuals joined together, once a week, to indulge in their passion for ‘songs of the sea’. The Southend-on-Sea Silver Darlings are six strong-voiced women, who sing a mix of traditional shanties and other songs of the sea, in both English and French, splicing their harmonies in an energising performance, never failing to bring the shanty party to life.
