Tavy Tars

Like the Shanty Festival, the Tavy Tars have been going for 13 years now, singing a mixture of rollicking shanties and quieter sea songs.Based at Bere Ferrers on the Tavy Estuary, we continue to support the RNLI through our links with the Plymouth Lifeboat.

Over the past year we have sung from the Scillies to Gloucester in pubs, clubs and the occasional boat, Seasalt Shop and old folks’ tea, where we are now beginning to match the audience quite closely!

Nevertheless we are still really enjoying playing and singing together and are looking forward to the Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival again- it is definitely one of the highlights of our year.
