The Harry Browns

The Harry Browns are the longest serving shanty group from Bristol. Named after the old Harry Brown sand dredger, they began singing as a “super group” in the late 1980s and expanded their repertoire to include a wide range of songs of the sea including contemporary and self-penned songs. They have toured Europe and sung at major festivals in the UK and abroad.

In addition to researching and giving life to many forgotten songs, the Harries are renowned for their musical arrangements and harmonies, their humour and spontaneity.

Every Harry performance is unique and engaging. You have been warned!
