'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!
LOTS of stuff going on at various locations in Hotwells! Poetry, music, dance, comedy (see their website.) We're singing in the marquee outside Nova Scotia at 1.00pm on Sunday. Come along, bring friends, enjoy!

the Roaring Trowmen
We've been asked to sing in a church in Melksham, so will probably be ditching the PA and indulging in the glorious acoustic of the place! We'll probably do 2 sets of 45 minutes, and might just sing a bit more in the local pub afterwards :-). Tickets are £8 in advance from The Bell on the Common, Broughton Gifford and Holt Superstore, or £10 on the night.
Wooly Mini Fest
Woolaston Memorial Hall, GL15 6PE
The amazing village folk of Woolaston, near Lydney, have decided to organise a mini festival, just to give some fun to their residents. Good for them :-) Bar, burgers, bouncy castle, plus we're singing there. What's not to like? If you're fairly local, come along!!
Shrewsbury Folk Festival
We're not official performers this year, but the lovely organisers have agreed to let us run a Sea Shanty singing workshop on the Saturday evening :-). This was so popular last time we did it that we burst out of our indoor venue and had to run it outside, standing on a picnic bench! Anyone remember that?? Full details in the festival program. We'd LOVE to see some of you again!!
