Gig Information

New Zealand's Most 'Sea Worthy' Shanty Group™ have been belting out traditional and original sea songs from Aotearoa, France, Spain, the UK and more, for 7 years now. Sailors and landlubbers from across the country have been battered by the rousing chorus of this 2-man tempest of pure shanty. The W.S.S.S believe that 'a shanty shared is a shanty savoured', so they pass out shanty song sheets to one and all so people can sing along.

The W.S.S.S have toured New Zealand and France multiple times and are known for their raucous and participatory live shows. They have performed at Paimpol (one of the world's largest shanty festivals), Splore, and a number of other festivals in NZ and Fance. They have released 3 albums Now That's What I Call Sea Shanties Vol I & Now That's What I Call Sea Shanties Vol II as well as Ahoy! - a French/English album made with our French friends Croche Dedans.

The W.S.S.S comprise Vorn Dont le Père Etait Marin and Lake Davineer. Vorn is on squeeze box duties, while Lake strums the git-fiddle. Rousing harmonies and raucous foot-stomping abound!

This show will feature the full 4-person squall with drums and fiddle!
