Shanty heaven

The Beach’d Buoys had a fantastic weekend at Cornwall’s Port Isaac Shanty Festival, organized by The Fisherman’s Friends. The weather was terrible and we were shorthanded, but the atmosphere was great!

We began on Friday night, watching the headliners give a magisterial performance in the red-and-white striped tent. Then on Saturday it was our turn. We played the minstrels’ gallery in the Chapel Cafe on Roscarrock Street (that’s the famous Organ Sign that loads of bands have photographed) at lunchtime, then did an early evening set at the rollicking Golden Lion on Fore Street — the photo below is the image from behind Bari’s makeshift drum stool.

More to come when we’ve downloaded all the images!
