Kings Pond Shantymen


We have deliberately not  explained the why and wherefore of shanties on this site, though there is quite a bit to it.  You can find out a great deal from these excellent sites:

Wikipedia A great starting point on the why and wherefore of shanties.
Traditional Music History and large collection of lyrics.

Some other shanty groups

Kimbers Men Who claim on their web site to be the UK's Finest Shanty Band - we might not agree with that but they're pretty good
Nelson's Shantymen Based at Burnham Thorpe - Nelson's birthplace.
