The singers and musicians embrace the songs and tunes of the folklore and musical heritage of England, Scotland, and Ireland, as well as songs of the sea, humorous English Music Hall songs, and the occasional old timey or bluegrass melody. All are welcomed to lead a song or join us in the choruses.
