The Hoy Shanty Crew

Back in 2013 several members of The Hoy at Anchor Folk Club got together and started singing folk-based chorus songs, particularly shanties and became The Hoy Shanty Crew. The Crew’s infectious enthusiasm and rousing delivery of local and national ‘sea songs’ has meant they have become a firm fixture at many events throughout Essex.  
Much of the quality material and lead singing came from Jack Forbes who will be sorely missed by the Crew and their followers.

The Hoy Shanty Crew will perform at Estuary 2016's Opening Event on Friday 16 September 2016.
