The Shantylillies

The Shantylillies is a female shanty group founded in August 2018 and based in Albany. Each woman brings something new and special with her to the group. We sing traditional working shantys and songs of the sea, maritime ballads, and a few of our own originals. We invite you to join with us as we bring a selection of songs that have been written for a “crew” to sing. We are keeping the old shantys alive, and adding a few new ones along the way
