St Ives Shanty Shout
There are over 20 shanty shout groups taking part in the festival including Cape Cornwall singers, The Pirates of St Piran, Bamaluz Bootleggers and many more. The Shanty Shout event which will take place on Friday 24th and Saturday 25th November in a range of venues across the town, including The Castle Inn and The Golden Lion, is likely to be another shanty shout huge success.
The Shanty Shout is a charity event with all funds raised for Children’s Hospice South West and The RNLI.
The festival name, St Ives Shanty Shout comes from the Cornish tradition of singing sessions in pubs. Trevor Woodyatt, one of the organisers of the St Ives Shanty Shout, states “I am extremely grateful to all who have helped me to organise the shout and was delighted when Cornish Horizons agreed to sponsor the event. I never believed that a few songs with friends in a local pub would revive a rich tradition back to St Ives”.
