Website changes Autumn/ Winter 2015/2016

Hi Folks,

Sorry for the lack of communication recently – we’ve been tinkering with the website over the last few weeks and our plan is to have the site newly designed by the end of the winter.

It’s “Business as usual” as far we’re concerned  at the moment, as all functions are working just fine – we’re still receiving your emails loud and clear!

However the design of the site will undergo several changes while we decide on which looks best for us across all platforms.

If there are any issues please do bear with us and we’ll do our best to sort them out as they arise.

Cheers for now

Harwich – Taking something for us…

Hi Folks,

I think Harwich Sea Shanty festival was my own personal singing highlight of the year. It was our last festival of the season and as we’d never been before, we didn’t quite know what to expect.

For the most part the festival takes place in wonderful real ale pubs, on boats and smaller intimate venues. Imagine our surprise when we were asked to come into St Nicholas’ Church which seats 1500 people on several tiers. We weren’t really expecting to sing, merely just to listen to the other fabulous acts (I mentioned Brasy from Poland before – they have beautiful voices).

We had to drive the 4 hours back to Bristol and were under time pressure so when the organisers called us out on stage immediately – it caught us a little by surprise even though it shouldn’t have done.

Mostly Festivals are about us giving to people (and a great and fond pleasure it is to do so) but sometimes you have to take something back. We sang South Australia and really roared it out in true Trowmen fashion – The response from the audience however was outstanding – I’ve never had tears in my eyes like it before but I did on Sunday – it was truly overpowering.

So I’m just going to take a minute or two this week to bask in that moment…again…

Info about the Autumn Singaround very soon.

Cheers for now

Harwich here we come!

Hi Folks,

After being on the road for the last few weeks we’ve started waltzing into a hinterland of forgetfulness- hence this late post!

This whole weekend we will be attending Harwich International Sea Shanty and what has struck us is how international it actually is. We will be in superlative company of groups from Poland, Germany, The Netherlands and other continental countries.

If you happen to be in the area and of a mind, you should try to capture performances from Brasy, Kaap Horn, Jim Radford and Press Gang to name just a few of the wonderful mix of artists performing at this year’s festival.

We are truly looking forward to being at the party and we’ll report back next week to let you know how it all went if you weren’t there!

Cheers for now
