Nautical News: Shanty Album Release & Tour

They say some things never leave us. They’re always there, just out of reach, between sleep and dreams. Between the foreshore and seabed. The plaintive moan of a bachelor seal. The treasure we never found. The life we never led.

But fear not sweet hearties – the Wellington Sea Shanty Society (WSSS) are back from exile with a swag bag of forgotten futures! Secrets given up by the sea in the form of ‘Sea Shanties of the 70’s, 80’s & Today!’ (their new EP).

Each song a mysterious oyster lovingly shucked by the likes of Vorn dont Le Père Était Marin, Lake Davineer, Nick De La Mer, Thomas Un Copa and long time shanty foes ‘The Salty Wailers’. (Quarter) mastering by Mike Gibson.

These new shanties were committed to memory (human and digital) in the earthquake-prone bowels of an empty Wellington office block. A windswept shelf overlooking a dark harbour – what better place to prize joy from salty oblivion?

To celebrate the WSSS are inviting you to do just that - by bringing their lively singalong show to a whare or flophouse near you. There will also be a treasure hunt for handmade bounty by WSSS alumni and jewel-smith Su Keates, as well as a map by cartographer extraordinaire Sam Van Der Weerden.

If you’re from Te Whanganui-a-Tara, and you know your imaginary history, you’ll know the show at Breaker Bay Hall represents a return to hallowed ground. But then again, every show will be more thrilling than a gallon of grog and seeing the captain walk the plank!

'Best dressed' prizes! Nautical games! Singalong shanties!

Don’t miss out!
