Exmouth Shanty Men

The Exmouth Shanty Men do it with gusto!

Devon’s ‘original buoy band’ first burst on to the folk scene in 2007 and their continually growing reputation has been founded on the authenticity and integrity of their performance.

Committed to keeping alive their hometown and their nation’s rich maritime heritage, they dress in period costume and put their songs back on to the deck Stuart Line’s flag ship, where they rightfully belong, splicing together, hard-bitten, hard-sung, work shanties with gentle forebitters, heartbreaking laments, delivered with pathos.

Their interaction with their audience makes every performance unique which you can enjoy with Stuart Line on the water with a licensed bar.

The cruise will set sail taking in some breathtaking views along the water where you will be given a performance of a lifetime, with soul and vigor by the Shanty Men themselves.
