The Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival was founded in 2003 by Falmouth Shout, with a mission to maintain age old traditions and to keep alive the history of Tall Ships and the days of sail by performing sea shanties, songs of the sea and Cornish songs. The festival has transformed over the years into what is now the biggest Shanty festival in Europe.
