The Liverpool Shanty Choir comprises a group of ship mates berthed at Liverpool John Moores University singing a cappella sea ballads and traditional work songs from the great age of sail.

With members from a variety of fields and backgrounds, they are a mixed choir specialising in songs (traditional and original) associated with the great port of Liverpool.

For the launch of their debut album, Not the Full Shanty, the Liverpool Shanty Choir offers a multi-media performance including music, visuals and dramatized readings of maritime tales.

Shanty-singing is a communal genre, so come along prepared to sing, to blow the man down, and to mull over the question that has plagued humankind since they first went down to the sea in ships: What shall we do with the drunken sailor?

Tickets for this event include a £1 venue restoration levy, included in the ticket price. This fee supports building investment at the Grade II-listed Liverpool Philharmonic Hall.
