Femmes De La Mer are a 14 strong crew hailing from across Cornwall.
Each individual member brings a unique sound to the group, yet it’s their blend of a-cappella harmonies that has gained them recognition amongst sea shanty communities.
Led by musical director, Claire Ingleheart, this all-female group sing traditional shanties alongside original material and some alternative takes on ballads of the sea.
Femmes de la Mer’s narrative encompasses songs of love, loss and the feisty women of Cornwall.
