And prepare for the calm and the storm, with shanties and other songs of the sea !
The Lost Quays are a vocal group based in the port of Fremantle, Western Australia. Formed in 2015, our crew sing largely a cappella but with some guitar, mandolin and accordion. We perform with energy and good humour, and relish a strong audience connection. As well as traditional material, and nautical folk material from around the world, our repertoire contains original songs, including local Australian tales.
Can't wait for our next performance? Come and see us at Fremantle's Shanty Club. We host this very informal evening on every second Monday of each month at Clancy's Fish Pub. This fixture has been going withour fail since late 2015. Joining in with the crew to sing the chorus is definitely encouraged - and there's every opportunity to get up on stage and sing a maritime song yourself.
Why not hire The Lost Quays to entertain at your next boat launch? No boat? We are nothing if not flexible - we can perform at corporate functions, charity events, community entertainments, parties of all shapes and sizes, and all especially if you like the idea of getting into the spirit and singing along with some shanties.
