Songs & Tunes

For centuries the Atlantic seaboard of North West Europe has produced a feast of intensely vibrant music and movingly evocative song. Its great rivers and seas have provided a conduit for the music to travel far beyond national borders. These maritime links and the Irish, Cornish and Manx heritage of The Sea Bandís players provide the inspiration for their music. Sea songs and shanties are interwoven with virtuosic reels, jigs, polkas and   hornpipes that draw the listener into a lost world of storms, sea battles, pirates, starcrossed lovers and wild dances ashore.

Graham, Alan and Penny formed the Sea Band to combine their passion for traditional music and songs of the sea with their love of traditional  boats of which they have a growing collection!

As   front   man   and   vocalist   with   the   Late   Night   Band,   Graham   can   be   heard   on their   two   albums   and   has   more   recently   recorded   several   tracks   on   the   3   CD compendium “International History of the Concertina” Graham’s    family    have    been    miners    and    seamen    from    the    villages    around Charlestown in Cornwall since the early 17th Century.

Penny McCarthy  Clarinet, Vocals, Renaissance Recorders, Euphonium, Vocals, Penny started playing  traditional music on the clarinet with her family as a girl, touring in England, France and Belgium. A period at the University of Rennes and membership of the Circle Celtique de Rennes led to a study of Breton traditional music and Penny also collected many tunes from old players in the Vendee and Auvergne in the 1970s. In conjunction with Folk South West Penny founded Live Wires, a community music project working with young musicians in the West Country to raise the profile of musical traditions in the region. Penny is originally from the port city of Liverpool.
