Portsmouth Shanty Men

The Portsmouth Shanty Men have been described as a "power harmony group" who specialize in sea songs, but if its a good song they'll give it a go anyway! PSM have been in existence since 1978 when the Christchurch Festival unexpectedly found itself without a Shanty Crew.Nobody threw anything and they hada good time, so they have been doing it ever since. they have performed at shanty festivals, folk festivals,on historic sailing ships including HMS Victory and HMS Warrior ,clubs ,theme events book launches ,schools, charity and promotional events speakers house in the house of commons , on television and many others too numerous to mention. they have appeared at festivals all over the UK, Plus the near continent and the USA. Over 40 years on they are still going strong.
