Shantyvoyage to Shetland
Shantyvoyage to Shetland Folk Festival. On this voyage there will be daily Shanty singing!
We invite you to join us to Shetland Folk
There is an old saying that "a singing ship is a happy ship", The crew on board the ships according to maritime traditions were singing during the arrival and departures at the harbours to show that they worked on board a good ship.
Haakon Vatle has been a professional shanty singer for about 20 years and has been playing concerts on different venues both in norway and abroad. He is an experienced musician and will have daily workshops with you during the voyage, where he also will provide you with a short introduction to the historic background and importance of music at sea.
You will learn about sailing and the shanty music tradition.
In Shetland the Folk Festival offers a great variety of
concerts. The tickets for the concerts can be bought on the homepage for the Folk
Festival in Shetland.
