Tall Ships and Tavern Tales
- a voyage in song from the high seas to a dockside ale house
Tall Ships and Tavern Tales is a double album of songs from the Exmouth Shanty Men's two-part stage show of the same name. The first disc has 17 traditional sea shanties from the era of the tall ships, the second a varied collection of 16 numbers, some but not all traditional, 'which sailors might have enjoyed singing in a dockside tavern'. Our Tall Ships and Tavern Tales show has so far been enthusiastically received by audiences at Sidmouth Folk Festival, Harwich International Shanty Festival and in selected village halls around Devon - we are sure you will enjoy it too!
Ten Years before the Mast
The good ship Malarkey (a.k.a. The Exmouth Shanty Men) was launched ten years ago as part of the 2007 Exmouth Festival. In celebration and to mark the occasion, we are pleased to announce the release of our new CD "Ten Years before the Mast". The album contains twenty of our favourite shanties - many never recorded by us before - and gathered during our numerous exciting voyages this past decade. We have heard it said that this commemorative CD is our best ever - and we are sure you will agree!
Back On Board
This album is available as a download only
In the two years that have elapsed since they produced their last album, the buoys have sailed many a mile and have found new songs aplenty from near and far, some of which they have deemed suitable to record for posterity as "Back On Board". The album was recorded at The Old Wheelwright's on the southern slopes of Dartmoor over the course of a few days in April 2015 and, in an attempt to fully embrace modern technology as they are always eager to, is released on to an unsuspecting world in digital format only.
The songs contained within, none of which they have recorded before, encompass a range of moods; from shanties given the full Exmouth Shanty Men gusto, to quieter and more reflective numbers, sung with all the tenderness and feeling which they deserve.
Back from voyages in England and abroad, The Exmouth Shanty Men enjoyed a run ashore in January, 2013 in the safe waters of their home port. Since their last recording, Devon's original buoy band have played the main stage at Sidmouth, Warwick and Banbury, appeared on national television and radio in the UK & and in Europe, played at Tall Ships in Ireland and at the Olympics at Weymouth. They look forward to visiting The Netherlands and returning to France and Belgium during 2013.
When home, they can be found each week with a song and a pint in The Grove public house, overlooking Exmouth's deep water channel. Here over the course of two cold and snowy January evenings, they entertained family and friends whilst committing this collection of shanties and sea songs to this, their fourth album.
They hope you enjoy the result.

This cracking debut CD performed and recorded live in 2007 gives a real taste of The Exmouth Shanty Men on stage. Unleashed before an excited, amazed and partially sober audience at the Manor Hotel in their home port of Exmouth, the crew display their banter, energy, humour and rumbustious characters for all to hear. Engineered and mastered by VCA Solutions, these 16 rollicking tracks are sung with passion, gusto and not a little tenderness, when required. Surprising, really!
