"Another smashing Guest Night was provided
by The Exmouth Shanty Men, with another capacity crowd gracing the portals
of the Dolphin Hotel. I have to admit that I had not heard them live before
though I had heard their recordings, so to say that I was surprised by their
presence in the flesh, as it were, is not quite true as I should have
expected it from all I had heard about them. But what stood out was the
effortless professionalism coupled with an infectious joie de vivre from a
group who are basically amateur .... they put so many professional outfits
well into the shade. Their choice of songs, the variety of their
presentation and their musical performance could not be faulted." Peter &
Hilary - Organisers, Jurassic Folk Club, Beer
"What a fantastic bunch of guys The Exmouth
Shanty Men are! At 'Navy Days' we asked them to come and give us a couple of
'a-haa's' but they've given us far more than that. They kicked off our live
broadcast to 23 countries on BFBS Radio in true sea shanty style. Thank you
so much and I hope this is the start of a beautiful
relationship." Ernie Rowe - Head of British Forces Broadcasting
Service Radio UK.
"I think The Exmouth Shanty Men are very
entertaining and humorous without losing the traditional feel to these songs
and shanties which are such an important part of our heritage." Jim
Mageean - Folk singer known world-wide as 'Shanty Jim'

outfit and I'll work with them again in the future whenever I can." Ben
Pick - Marketing Manager - Pusser's Rum.
"The Exmouth Shanty Men were their usual
rowdy, enjoyable selves, clearly relishing every moment of their open air
show. Tight harmonies and robust tunes pleased the crowd, many of whom sang
along or rocked in time. It was a well rounded offering from these polished
performers." Sidmouth Herald - review of Sidmouth Folk Week.
"So many people commented to me on how much
fun The Exmouth Shanty Men were, both at the Folk Club and on the Main Stage

loved the special performance given for them. Thanks very much for being so
visible and adding to the buzz of the Festival." Pete McClelland -
Hobgoblin Music and Wadebridge Folk Festival.
"Quite superb!" Richard Green -
Producer - BBC Radio.

can stand shoulder to shoulder with any act on the scene because you put on
a 'SHOW'. You entertain and that is vitally important." Joe Stead of
Kimber's Men - renowned shanty singers
Exmouth Shanty Men gave a performance at Bridestowe village hall in aid of
church funds. (They) arrived on complete with a collection of props and
special lighting to give the Hall and stage a nautical feel and costumes
to echo the Nelson period. Tickets had sold out ten days before the event
and the hall was filled to capacity by an audience, some of whom had
travelled from as far afield as Bristol and Camborne. The performance was
professional and entertaining, with songs sometimes rumbustious and
sometimes quiet and reflective, interspersed with introductions laced with
humour and ad-libs. The rapport between ‘the crew’ and the audience was
full of fun." Okehampton Times

the words of Jason Manford -
that you will have a gamble on some comedians you have never heard of and
support the UK comedy circuit. You never know, you might get to see the next
Lee Evans or Michael McIntyre in a tiny venue before they start charging a
fortune at an arena and then smugly tell your friends in years to come that
you "saw him before he was famous"!'
remember 4th July 2009 Micky Flanagan performed her to a nearly full house.
The tickets were only £10, you cant do that now !!
