The Harwich Shanty Crew was formed at the 2010 Harwich Shanty Festival, during two workshops led by Geoff Higginbottom (of Three Sheets to the Wind) and Mick Verrier.
The new Crew gave its first performance at the Festival's Massed Shanty, aboard the sailing barge Victor, and following a successful year, returned to the 2011 Shanty Festival as a fully fledged performing crew. Since then we have performed at every Harwich International Shanty Festival and elsewhere: nearly ten years on, we are going strong and getting stronger.
New members are always welcome. If you are interested in joining the Harwich Shanty Crew please give Mick or Penny a call or an email (see above, or on the Contact Us page), or just come along to our next rehearsal, at Harwich Town Sailing Club; rehearsals take place on the FIRST Monday of every month, except November.
