Amid the devastation that is the 2020 festival calendar, we're delighted to say that the Oban International Shanty Festival planned for 6 June is going ahead! Online, of course. See right.
After the triumph that was the first Glasgow Shanty Day on 21 September 2019, featuring rare appearances from retired Muldoons Richard and David (above), we're looking forward to next year.
If you might be interested in a workshop and/or a performance from us, get in touch.
Our CD of winter music, All and some, can be ordered directly from us or via Bandcamp.com. It's also available at an actual shop (remember them?), the excellent Big Sparra Vinyl of Ayr. More info here.
Performers include The Silver Darlings, The Exmouth Shanty Men, Pressgang Mutiny, Monkey's Fist, LocTupTogether and The Keelers including Jim McGeen (who will be giving a talk on shanties), and all the way from France, Les Brouilleurs d’Ecoutes. Also, storytelling from Jan Bee Brown. Muldoon's Picnic will be singing at 8pm for 20 minutes.
A pretty impressive lineup, not to be missed! Best of all, it's free, though there will be the opportunity to donate to charity (Help Musicians). Tickets (numbers strictly limited for technical reasons, so please do not pass on the Zoom link) via Eventbrite.
Muldoon’s Picnic is an a-cappella harmony singing group based in Glasgow. We sing mostly traditional unaccompanied harmony songs from around the world, mostly in our own arrangements.
Our CD Gingham Down is a “whistle-stop Cook’s Tour of acappella musics … sure-footed and healthily alfresco”. A Scots Chorus was one of The Scotsman’s “best albums of 2013”. Our seasonal CD All and some was released in December 2015.
