The Lost Quays

The Lost Quays return to the Albany Folk and Shanty Festival. Last here in 2021 the Quays welcome you on board again - prepare for the calm and the storm, with shanties and other songs of the sea. Largely a cappella but with some guitar, mandolin and accordion, we perform with energy and good humour, and relish a strong audience connection! Our intros to the songs and shanty tradition reveal insights into seafaring history. As well as honouring the traditional shanties, we have Lost Quays originals for you. Our home port is Fremantle, Western Australia, where we host a regular monthly Shanty Club. Performing in many festivals and events across WA, in 2018 we toured The Netherlands, Germany and England. Avast!
