For Weddings - Festivals - Family Events - Anniversaries & Promotions
Du Hag Owr is a long established group of Shanty Singers who have performed at a wide range of events from the Minack Theatre at Lands End to The Golden Hind in London. DU HAG OWR is Cornish for 'Black and Gold'.
The original Seasalt Shantymen, we support local charities and recent events have included the
RNLI Falmouth Lifeboat visit to St Mawes Sailing Club, the Tresanton Hotel in St Mawes for the Childrens Hospice South West and the Falmouth International Shanty Festival in June plus Falmouth Folk & Cider Festival,
Probus Beer Festival, the Fal River Festival and the Wadebridge Folk Festival.
Recent highlights include a Wedding at the Greenbank Hotel, Falmouth for a couple from California (although he was originally from Cornwall!!), the first Shanty Night of the season for 5 Degrees West and then the St Ives Shanty Festival - probably our busiest year to date and all to help raise funds for the Childrens' Hospice SW at St Austell.
If you're organising a special occasion or want some music and fun at a local event, give us a call - we practice most Tuesday evenings from 8 p.m. at The Royal Standard in Gerrans, near St Mawes on the Roseland.
Come along and join in - the Real Ale and Food's good as well!!
