She Shanties are a women’s shanty crew made up of twelve strong singers, all with years of experience of singing in several genres – mostly folk but also rock, choral and Sacred Harp music. Several members also perform with other groups (Ruth and Sadie Price, the Rachel Hamer Band, Cath and Phil Tyler), and over the past four years have developed their own powerful, harmonic sound.
She Shanties launched in December 2011, stranded on St Mary’s Island, Whitley Bay. Since then, they have performed at Bromyard Folk Festival, Shepley Spring Festival, Ellesmere Port Shanty Festival, Holmfirth Folk Festival, Whitby Folk Week, and many more.
