Come sing a shanty and down a shandy with this 4 person squall that is the Wellington Sea Shanty Society!

New Zealand's Most 'Sea Worthy' Shanty Group™ have been belting out traditional sea songs from Aotearoa, France, Spain, the UK and more, for more than two years. Sailors and landlubbers from across the country have been battered by the rousing chorus of this two-man tempest (4 piece now!) 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,

"Probably New Zealand's best dance album of the year" - Sunday Star Times

"Their live performances have turned into raucous crowd-participating evenings around the capital and there's certainly a Mumford and Sons-style danceability to these nine tracks which take them beyond simple comic value - although you'll be hard-pressed not to listen with a smile on your face." - Stuffco nz

"The debut release from Wellington Sea Shanty Society is, as the album and band title suggest, brimful of tunes of which the Pogues would be proud." - Otago Daily Times
