Just making sure that it is not necessary to be able to play an instrument to come along one Thursday and give it a go.

Ahoy there. Ability to play an instrument is just a bonus. We are looking mainly for good male voices.

Send an email to: and I will give you directions on how to find us.

Shame it's not the 29 St Heilaire! I'm in Brennilis, Nr Huelgoat 29690. I come from a sea going family and would love to sing shanties and songs, and did so with an Essex based Morris group and in folk clubs,for many years. Then having moved around quite a lot ending up in Cornwall with a family based in Cornwall became interested in shanties etc again.

Please let me know when you are in the area, love to see and hear you!

Thank you for your interest CharlieC,

Yes, a pity that everyone who is interested lives too far away.

Where are all the gentlemen in and around Pontivy 56?

There used to be a session/folk night in Huelgoat but not sure if still on.  Perhaps someone else will know.

The Sunday afternoon session still takes place as far as I know at Les Fous, Carnoet.  Last Sunday of month so on this Sunday.  Lots of chorus songs, shanties and anything else people want to perform.  I think it starts aound 2.30

Thanks for joining the discussion, Emu, with some interesting info. Maybe Chantimor will have a trip out there one Sunday afternoon, if we are invited!

Thanks also for the info Emu. Do you have to be invited or is it an open mike?

Just to flag up that we are still looking for another male singer. You do not need to be Pavarotti! A rough, loud, gravelly voice that can hold a tune and keep to a rythm would be ideal. Come and join us now to be ready for the summer season! Contact: Find us on Facebook: chantimor56 and
