Swinging The Lead

Anyone for a Shantie Bouy?

Purveyors of Shanties and Songs of the Sea “Stop swinging the lead and get on with it” cried the mate. The best we could do was to break into song, and so Swinging the Lead was launched. Swinging the Lead have performed at many festivals and folk clubs throughout 2013 and repeated performances on board the sailing barge Edith May and The Cutty Sark in Greenwich, London.
