Rosses Point Shanty Festival

News - "Add some salt to your taste in music" Shanty singing gets a boost in Rosses Point as Harry's launches The Wild Atlantic Sessions

As a follow on to the interest in Shanties generated through the Festival, our local groups, and the designation of Rosses Point as a Discovery Point on the Wild Atlantic Way - Harrys Bar and Gastro Pub is introducing The Wild Atlantic Sessions.
The session is aimed at all those who like maritime song and music and will run on the last Saturday of each month.
The session is aimed at giving people a chance to listen, sing along or indeed take a spot in singing shanties sea songs stories and music. It's designed to be informal and with singer songwriter Ian Bordley at the helm promises to be a great nights entertainment.
Come along to Rosses Point and add a little salt to your taste in music. The next session is on Saturday the 26th April @ 10pm.

Join us in as we embark on our fifth International Sea Shanty Festival, join in the fun, meet old and new friends, and enjoy the singing with Shanty Groups from home and abroad.

The shanty weekend draws big crowds to the village lured by an international line-up of performers. This year will be no different with groups coming from snowy Scandinavia, a sun-baked island off the African coast and a less than sunny windswept Atlantic Archipelago.
The festival supports the work of the RNLI.

Programme details to follow.
