Bryher's Boys at St Ives September Festival
Cornwall shanty favourites Bryher’s Boys are “setting sail” for the 2021 St Ives September Festival.
They will drop anchor at St Ia’s Parish Church on Monday September 20. Tickets online at www.stivesseptemberfestival.co.uk
and from tourist information centres throughout Cornwall
Bryer’s Boys were formed back in 2017 when the tenor and bass sections of several West Cornwall choirs were press ganged to form a new crew to navigate the choppy waters of Sea Shanty singing.
Based in West Cornwall – from Newlyn to Truro – they were proud to represent Cornwall at Brittany’s Festival 2019 Interceltique singing to 9,000 people at a time!
They released their fist CD ’The Ballad of the Boy Jacq’ the same year and, delighted to be returning to the stage post-Covid restrictions
they will bring their unique mix of traditional Cornish songs, shanties and shaggy dog stories to St Ives.
Most recently, this Spring, Bryher’s Boys’ music reached a national audience of millions when it featured in two episodes of the hit TV series “Rick Stein’s Cornwall”.
