'the Roaring Trowmen' are four hearty men from Bristol who sing sea shanties and songs of the salty deep with passion, power and glorious blending harmonies, and plenty of humorous banter!
After a desperate 3-year absence, we're booked back at our favourite local folk festival, high up on the Mendip Hills, where we first just rocked up to sing in the pubs about 9 years ago!! We'll be doing a couple of our own gigs, helping with some shanty singarounds and workshops, plus doing some general busking across the weekend. More details to follow.
We are proper Trowmen tickled to be invited back to the glorious Shrewsbury Folk Festival for the third time as performers (we were there as punters and ran a small shanty singing workshop in 2021). The first line-up announcement has been made and tickets go on sale today, so go check out their website. On our mission to prove to the world that there's more than one sea shanty, we'll bring our usual glorious a cappella harmonies and general silliness to the event. See you there!
