Yes, it is a full ten years ago that a ship called the Malarkey, a.k.a. the Exmouth Shanty Men, began its perilous voyages around the British coast and beyond - bringing the sound of good cheer and song wherever we pull into port.

To celebrate this remarkable longevity we have released a SPECIAL 10th ANNIVERSARY CD - TEN YEARS BEFORE THE MAST - with many of our, and we hope your, favourite shanties.

You can buy this CD for home delivery or for download on our SHOPPE page  - click on the video below for a quick taster!   

The Exmouth Shanty Men do it with gusto!

Devon's 'original buoy band' first burst on to the folk scene in 2007 and their continually growing reputation has been founded on the authenticity and integrity of their performance.

They have played the 2012 Olympics in Weymouth & the Tall Ships Regatta in both Waterford (Eire) & Falmouth (England); and many Festivals across the UK and Europe including Sidmouth, Warwick, Wadebridge, Falmouth, Wickham, Lichfield L2F, Banbury, Chippenham and Weymouth (England); Paimpol, Brest & Douarnenez (France); Oostende & Blankenberge (Belgium); Appingedam (Holland); Travem√ľnde (Germany) and Krakow (Poland).

Featured regularly in print media as well as radio and TV at home & abroad, in 2014 they gained international recognition when they were presented with the "Stan Hugil Award" for the 'most authentic shanties' at the highly respected Krakow International Shanty Festival. 

In between live appearances they have recorded 6 albums, all of which can be purchased, either as CDs from Shoppe or digitally from Downloads
