Join with Bridport Museum as they celebrate their major “Turner in Bridport” exhibition this summer with a night of Shanty Shenanigans in the Town Hall featuring songs of sea from local musicians – all in aid of the Bridport Museum Trust.
Headlining the event will be the towns very own local shanty band, the recently formed Bridport Broadside’s. They will be performing a selection of traditional songs and encouraging the odd singalong that will transport the audience to the sailing ships of old.
No evening of set on the Dorset coast would be complete without some pirates and the evening will feature The Boarding Crew – an original pirate band from Chesil Bay telling salty tales of revenge and bloodshed on the high seas.
Ruthy ni Connalláin is a fantastic local singer who will be opening the evening with a set of acapella folk songs of love, loss and yearning.
