Pilgrims and transports2

Thanks to all of you who came and got transported from Mayflower steps, or more accurately the giant shrimp / sea monster thing, a wonderful afternoon, with no wind and wall to wall sunshine, and it wasn’t bad in the pub afterwards either.

Back in harbour

Another successful trip to “forrin parts”, a most satisfying and rewarding trip to Harwich. All the crew got to share in the bounty; the trip was made even more pleasurable by the very friendly natives and other assorted rogues and scallywags.
Unfortunately one of our crew managed to jump ship whilst in port, Syd has decided to leave the crew for pastures new; we’ll miss him. So we are looking for a replacement, you could come voluntarily or we will press you. If you’re looking for adventure, a sex, drugs and rock and roll lifestyle, look elsewhere! If you have a fancy to go shanty singing get in touch.
Kevin.

Outward bound again

After a safe return from a trip up the coast to Teignmouth for their very successful first shanty festival, we’re just about to let go the lines as we’re outward bound again this time heading east to the wilds of Essex, we’re off to discharge music and mirth and maybe load the odd tankard of ale in Harwich, we’re at their annual shanty festival so come and pay a visit you won’t be disappointed 🎶👍🎶👍🎶✅

Busy Summer——Still more to come

This has been a wonderful year, especially for The Old Gaffers…..we have travelled far and wide to entertain many thousands of happy smiling faces with our very own special unique style of singing and banter.
