THE AUDE SHANTY MEN http://theaudeshantymen.blogspot.com/
The Aude Shanty Men live mainly in the Aude, with a few renegade interlopers ‘press ganged’ from the Ariège. We enjoy singing traditional and modern sea shanties in harmony, to keep alive the tradition of sailors’ working songs, and other songs of the sea. As well as enjoying ourselves, we raise money for both the RNLI in the UK, and the SNSM (French Lifeboat Service), with recent donations to the lifeboat at Gruissan. We have recently been collecting for the families of the tragedy that took place at Les Sables on 7th June. On this occasion, we are more than happy to support the good work of CSF, and wish them an enjoyable and successful day.
In addition, the ‘Salon du Thè’ at Les Marguerites will be open from 15h00,
