It is with great sadness that The AudeShantyMen announce the passing of one of their founding members IAN MURPHY aka Magellan. After a period of manfully battling ill health, Ian slipped his anchor peacefully on Thursday 24 August. His lively character, musical direction and dramatic input will be sorely missed by the group. A memorial concert is being planned in his honour so please watch here for further details. The nickname Magellan came after several infamous navigational issues - we hope Ian has no problem finding his next destination. RIP.

A large crowd of wine tasters at La Louviere, Malvies were treated to an evening of music of the sea by The AudeShantyMen on 10 August. The group were boosted by the first public appearances of "Pilot" and the recently press ganged Grant both giving sterling performances. Audience participation was a key part of the evening and much fun was had by all.

Considering that the Crew have just gone aboard and are yet to find their proper sea legs Saturday evening's performance (1 April) at the Brasserie du Quercorb proved most encouraging. Boosted by the blooding of two new hands the AudeShantyMen sounded fuller and rounder with the harmonies as strong as ever. The primary objective - to rehearse for our upcoming session in the recording studio - was more than fulfilled. We are now back at work with a will and many thanks to Paul and Jayne Bayliss (the brewery owners) and their staff for enabling a wonderful evening.

The AudeShantyMen gave an unannounced "rehearsal" performance at the Brasserie du Quercorb on 17 February 2017 much to the delight of the Friday night regulars.

Blending some of their traditional songs of the sea with several new tracks being sung in public for the first time, a fun time was had by all - ably assisted by the top quality refreshments on hand!

The bar was packed both inside and out with customers joining in the choruses and demanding to know when the crew will be back for a full performance - WATCH THIS SPACE.
