The Exmouth Shanty Men do it with Gusto!!

The Exmouth Shanty Men are one of the UK's most famous and well-loved shanty groups.

We first burst on to the folk scene in 2007 and our continually growing reputation has been founded on the quality, authenticity and pure enjoyment of our performances.

We have played at the Olympics in Weymouth & the Tall Ships Regatta in both Waterford (Eire) & Falmouth (England); and many Folk and Shanty Festivals across the UK and Europe including Shrewsbury, 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,we have twice (in 2014 and 2018) won the internationally-recognised "Stan Hugil Award" for the 'most authentic shanties'. 

In between live appearances we have recorded 6 albums, all of which can be purchased, either as CDs or downloads from the Shop page of this website.
