The Buoys are back in town

After a stupendous season of music festival and concert appearances across the UK and in Europe, THE Exmouth Shanty Men return home to the Blackmore Theatre with their new show.

On Friday, November 11, at 7.30pm, the crew will take the stage along with very special guests and folk music legends “Shanty Jim” Mageean and Graeme Knights.

Having appeared with some of the biggest names in folk and world music, realeased their third album and raised over £100,000 for charity, the Exmouth crew, dubbed “The Original Buoy Band” are flying high and have grown into a world class act.

They sing their salty sea songs with passion and gusto, and their rich harmonies and clever arrangements make every show unique and memorable. They appear in full period costume and in character, hauling ropes, turning the capstan and pumping the bilges. But it is the hilarious below-decks banter and spontaneous humour that also engages audiences of all ages.

Tickets are just £7 from Exmouth Town Hall (01395) 276167 or on the door, but book early!
