To say that the She Shanties stand out as an all-female shanty group is to state the obvious, but their northern accents also stand out in a genre dominated by a certain Cornish shanty group.
She Shanties, singing accompanied, have an unembellished and clean sound. Their less dramatic approach lets the lyrics stand centre stage and their subjects feel accessible. The songs are nurtured and emotionally loaded.
“She Shanties, with this album, have marked their spot as the premier a capella women’s shanty group in the world.” Scoundrel’s Inn
