Still Singing Up A Storm

Event information

As seen on BBC Four's 'Shanties and Sea Songs with Gareth Malone'. This rousing Yorkshire male-voice shanty group performs a riot of colourful sea songs, nautical ballads and spirited broadsides with full-tilt enthusiasm and praiseworthy gutsiness. An assured, sumptuous, and suitably stirring set celebrating the spirit of the sea. ______________________________________________________________________ For those that haven't seen Kimber's Men, rectify this at the earliest opportunity and bask in the rich harmonies of one of this country's leading Shanty-styled groups. Now a four-piece the hearty vocals of Neil Kimber, Micheal Beeke, John Bromley and Gareth Scott combine in unison to stir the imagination of anyone wishing to feel as if they've just encountered a force ten gale, leading from traditional shanties - 'Roll The Woodpile Down', 'Haul Away For Rosie' and 'Bulgine Run' - and sea songs such as Stan Rogers 'Mary Ellen Carter' and Bill Meek's 'Harry Eddom', to stand-out self-penned tracks. With haunting group harmonies and a variety of wonderful lead vocals - each member taking his turn at leading a particular song - this is a beautifully crafted evening of marvellous and rousing maritime music. ______________________________________________________________________ 'A beautifully crafted mixture of standards, obscurities and shanty-inspired songs.'
