Molgoggers

The Molgoggers are an Irish shanty group singing out of Cobh in the County of Cork. They have sung all over Ireland and are on their third visit to the Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival in June of this year. We have enjoyed their company on several occasions and have been delighted to sing with them, to them and to be entertained by them. A hearty crew no doubt.

Omega Three

Omega Three are four Waterford musicians (despite their name!) who play an eclectic mix of music that is hard to categorise. You'll have to come along and listen to them playing, and then make up your own mind!

Paddys Passion

Based in the Netherlands, Paddys Passion sing a great mix of sea songs, shanties and Irish music, and, apart from travelling to shanty festivals all over Europe, they are regular visitors to Ireland, especially to Clare, to savour Irish traditional music and no doubt to entertain in their own inimitable way.

Riggerloftets

Riggerloftets are a large shanty choir singing out of Tonsberg in Norway, where they have been singing for many years. We have met them on a number of occasions, here in Ireland and in Norway, and it was indeed our privilage to sail with them from Tonsberg to Llangesund (where we first met them) on the Berntine, an arctic sailing ship built in 1890. They sing a delightful set of sea songs, shanties and Norwegian songs.

Scheepsfolk

Scheepsfolk are also based in the Netherlands and they too sing all over Europe at various shanty festivals (shanties are very popular in Europe) and we are delighted to welcome them back to Ireland and to Waterford.
