She Shanties

Reviews of Futtock Shrouds

CD cover


Excerpt from a review by Tony Birch on the fatea Magazine website.

The She Shanties … A no-nonsense group, they introduce themselves in a wonderfully direct style, 'We're women, We sing shanties' and they do it very well indeed. There are twelve in the line-up and they're each a good singer in their own right. … the result is an album of real quality where every voice can be separately heard and the lyrics are crystal clear.

Futtock Shrouds is their first full album … wonderful … fast paced tunes … balanced out by some more considered songs.

This is an album that everyone who enjoys well presented traditional music should get hold of and it deserves to be widely heard. It's now released and available through the website but if you get the chance buy it at a show or festival after seeing The She Shanties.
