Seas of Mirth - Live Montage

  • 3 June 2017 7:30-11pm

There is a sizeable crew with a varying sound, marinated in maritime. Think folk instruments, worldly rhythms, prog rock-esque adventurousness, and bizarre sea-based song concepts. Expect plenty of nautical stupidity and theatrics at a ridiculously high-energy live show!
Their new album “Hark! The Headland Approacheth” is out now on I’m Not From London Records.

Seas of Mirth have played at Glastonbury Festival, Bestival, Secret Garden Party, Boomtown, Edinburgh Fringe and plenty of other weird and wonderful stages across the UK and mainland Europe.
“You’ll never hear sea-shanties in the same way ever again” – Virtual Festivals
“Great fun… irrepressible, with lots of good tunes and musicianship” – R2 (Rock ‘n’ Reel)
“An extremely refreshing and encouraging type of ridiculous” – Fatea Magazine
“Not your typical sea-shanty inspired band... will go down a storm” – Folk Radio UK

Admission

£10
