Bryher's Boys was formed back in 2017 when the Tenor and Bass sections of several West Cornwall choirs were press ganged to form a new crew especially designed to navigate the choppy waters of Sea Shanty singing! Although firmly rooted in the male vocal tradition, their trademark style of free harmony ensures that no two performances sound exactly the same.
Named after Bandleader, Trevor Brookes’s youngest daughter, Bryher, The Boys do not hale from the Scillies themselves, but are based firmly in West Cornwall, spread out from Newlyn to Truro.
Their collective love of the established folk repertoire, both Nautical and Cornish, proved an immediate hit with local audiences, with over 200 performances clocked up to date in venues as diverse as private parties, crowded pubs, community fundraisers (particularly for the RNLI), large scale concerts – even afloat aboard the RFA Lyme Bay!
Lockdown hasn’t stopped The Boys performing virtually via a series of Lockdown Videos which have entertained over tens of thousands of viewers across the World.
The group are particularly proud to have been selected to represent the whole of Cornwall in the summer of 2019, at Brittany’s Festival Interceltique, taking their unique mix of Traditional Cornish songs, shanties and shaggy dog stories to a new audience of over 800,000 attendees and singing to 9,000 people at a time! It topped a busy year which also saw the release of their 1st CD, The Ballad of the Boy Jacq.
Most recently, in Spring 2021, Bryher’s Boys’ music reached a national audience of millions, being featured in two episodes of the hit TV series “Rick Stein’s Cornwall”.
