Shanty Big Sings - what's next

We invite you to join us for our next Shanty Big Sing.
It will be held on Tuesday, 19 September 2023,
beginning at 8pm (20:00) British Time.

After Lowlands,
the next two
Big Sing themes will be
Our theme will be

We find that there is more than one family of shanties where
"Lowlands" or "Lowlands Away" is the heart of the crew's choruses.

Now we look forward to seeing what variety we all can gather.

Note: Don't worry about singing "the same" version as someone else.
Your singing style is unique, and is valid as a separate version.

The number of participants
-- both as singers and as non-singing observers in the session --
will necessarily be limited.

The following link should bring you to a page
where you can register to join the session,
whether as a contributor or just to listen (please say which).


Note: If you intend to contribute a song, it would be helpful if when you register
you tell us something about your version, e.g., where you learned it.
