The Ballina Whalers are Pete Truin, Jamie Doe and Sam Brookes – three musical barnacles clinging to the creaking hull of a musical tradition stretching back over hundreds of years. Using just their voices they explore ballads, shanties and seafaring songs that tell tales of whaling ships, lost loves, roaring storms and hardship out at sea.
“Stunning voices that blend so beautifully, a real knock out”
– Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2
There will also be floor spots, so come along and sing a song! We’re really lucky to have a very high quality collection of regular performers who are as much part of the night as the guest act.
Doors 7.30pm, music starts at 8pm. Come along at 7.30pm to put your name down for floor spots. Entry is £3, all the door money goes to the guest act.
