Exmouth Shanty Men feature on BBC Radio 3 - Sunday February 11th 

We are pleased to say that we were featured on the BBC Radio 3 show "Choir and Organ" on Sunday Feb 11th. The presenter Sara Mohr-Pietsch aired our song "Blood Red Roses" from our album "Randy Dandy O", sung by our one true leader Sam Minella (aka Derek Brookes). Also on the progam were choral works from Mozart, Wagner and Purcell - no contest!

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
