Welcome to Lytham St Annes Shanty Crew
The 'Lytham St Annes Shanty Crew' are a group of singers of shanties and sea songs happy to raise money for charities especially the RNLI. Although they perform mostly in the north-west, they are happy to appear further afield.
They sing mostly acapella with traditional working shanties mixing effortlessly with self-penned original material. They have a unique style, and many of their songs are boisterous, but the humour and harmonies are never far away.
Past appearances include Fleetwood Maritime Festival 'Sailor Town' the 2016 Lytham Festival in which they were the first artists to be sold out. A second night was hastily added, and that sold out too!
During the summer months their voices can be heard rolling across Lytham Green from the RNLI Lytham Lifeboat Station where they rehearse on a Monday evening from 19:30 hrs. and encourage passers-by to stop a while and listen, and make a contribution to the RNLI- it costs £200,000 a year to run the Lytham St Annes Lifeboat Station, so every penny counts !
They are available for gigs and fundraising appearances in and around the Fylde Coast. Appearances booked for 2018 include-
