Lost Quays

Welcome on board!
And with The Lost Quays prepare for the calm and the storm, with shanties and other songs of the sea! The sea shanty was the work song from the days of sail, telling of life on board, and the thoughts and desires of the men who sang them.
Singing largely a cappella, with a sprinkling of guitar, ukelele and accordion, we perform with energy and good humour, and relish a strong audience connection. As well as traditional material, and nautical folk material from around the world, there’s many an original song.
Based in the port of Fremantle, where we host an informal monthly ‘Shanty Club’ at Clancy’s Fish Pub, we’ve sailed in numerous festivals and events across Western Australia, with a European tour in 2018.
