SONG - Shammick Acoustic - Figurehead  
Shanty groups are always extremely popular, but rarely are they female.  Our guests this time are four feisty ladies from North Cornwall with a love of shanties and maritime songs, and the traditional songs of the area.  Pub singing is common in Cornwall, and it soon became obvious that these ladies were particularly keen on unaccompanied harmony singing, so they decided to get together and practice on a regular basis, not with any intention of ‘gigging’, but just to have a few songs that they could bring out at the local ‘sings’.  Then they started to be asked to sing here, there and everywhere, so Figurehead was born.  Mostly appearing at various events in Cornwall, including festivals at Looe, Port Eliot, Wadebridge, Crantock, Newquay and Bude, they have recently been performing further afield at Gloucester, and Fishquard in South Wales.  They have also graced the stage at the World Pasty Championships at the Eden Project.  We can look forward to a night of fine singing with lots of chorus songs and audience participation – and perhaps some of those Cornish pasties…

 

Admission on guest nights £8.00 (£7.00 if bought in advance) ~ and members of Shammick Acoustic get a further reduction, priced at £7.00 (£6.00 if bought in advance). PLEASE NOTE: ‘paid in advance’ means paid, it doesn’t mean ‘reserved in advance’. Advance tickets can be bought up to a month before the event at Shammick Acoustic Sessions, OR at The Pack O’ Cards OR at Pet's Pantry in Combe Martin High Street. Advance tickets for non-members, can also be purchased by going to WeGotTickets
