Wellington Sea Shanty Society

January 18th | Our Place, Tauranga, Bay of Plenty

Wellington Sea Shanty Society, New Zealand's Most 'Sea Worthy' Shanty Group, have been belting out traditional and original sea songs from around the globe since time immemorial (2012).

Sailors and landlubbers from across the country have been battered by the rousing chorus of this two-man tempest of pure shanty. The W.S.S.S believe that 'a shanty shared is a shanty savoured', so they pass out shanty song sheets to one and all for people to sing along.

The W.S.S.S have toured New Zealand and France multiple times and are known for their raucous and participatory live shows. They have performed at Paimpol (one of the world's largest shanty festivals), Splore, and a number of other festivals in NZ and France.

They've released 3 albums: Now That's What I Call Sea Shanties Vol I, Now That's What I Call Sea Shanties Vol II and, Ahoy! (an English/French collab with friends Croche Dedans).

The W.S.S.S comprise Vorn Dont le Père Etait Marin, from the indie pop band Vorn, and Lake Davineer from electro pop band Lake South. Vorn is on squeeze box duties, while Lake strums the git-fiddle. Rousing harmonies and raucous foot-stomping abound!
