The Wellington Sea Shanty Society join forces with France's favourite 'Post Chant Marin' groupe Croche Dedans for a summer tour of Aotearoa New Zealand!

The four piece Croche Dedans are making the long voyage from Nantes, France, to travel our fair coastline for 12 shows from Leigh to Akaroa. They channel sea shanties from the shores of Brittany and beyond with a vigour and skill rarely seen in the oceanic folk scene.

New Zealand's Most 'Sea Worthy' Shanty Group, the Wellington Sea Shanty Society, have been belting out traditional sea songs from New Zealand for nigh on two years. 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 so people can sing along,

The W.S.S.S comprise Vorn Dont le Père Etait Marin, from the indie pop band Vorn (www.vorn.co.nz), and Lake Davineer, from the electro pop band Urbantramper (www.urbantramper.com). Vorn is on squeeze box duties, while Lake strums the git-fiddle. Rousing harmonies and raucous foot-stomping abound!
