International Shanty Festival Rotterdam

The 15th anniversary of the International Shanty Festival in Rotterdam will bring together 35 di- erent shanty choirs and groups. Shanties are the traditional work-songs sung by seafarers on old sailing ships. The big tent on the Plein 1940 forms the heart of the festival. There are several other locations around the Leuvehaven. The festival opens on the evening of Friday 1 September. On Saturday 2 September and Sunday 3 September, the festival will take place from 11:00 to 17:00 hours. On Saturday evening, several international groups will be performing, including two shanty groups from Poland and a group from Germany: 35 shanty choirs in all. More details about this free festival can be found at the website www.shantyfestivalrotterdam.nl. Don’t miss it!
