The Big Shanty night - 1 hour each from Roaring Forties & Redfern Shanty Crew

The Dog is permanently in the Back Hall which has disability access.

The Roaring Forties - Veteran harmony singers with a cartload of traditional and finely-crafted contemporary folk songs about Australian social, industrial and political history, with rousing shanties and choruses.

Founded in the late 70s (1970s!) as the Sydney Shanty Singers, later the Ensemble of Fat Bearded Shanty Singers, by 1988 they were The Roaring Forties & had put out their first recording - since reissued as a CD.


Redfern Shanty Crew

A jolly and raucous night of singing old songs, making new friends, and discovering your sea legs. Sometimes a fiddle & accordion, sometimes a cappella, and always a lot of fun choruses to get you singing like a salty dog! Shanty Club has a history of surprise guests, an encouraging, inclusive atmosphere, and noise-complaint-worthy volume levels!
