"The Travelling People" folk and shanty group started in the Formby/Crosby area of Merseyside in 1968 and are now the longest established still performing folk group on Merseyside. They ran the the famous "Wheelhouse" folk club in Crosby for many years. They have appeared at all the major venues in the area including the Floral Hall Southport and the Empire Theatre, Philharmonic Hall and Irish Centre in Liverpool. They now provide Shanty, Liverpool and Irish songs and music for Liverpool Culture Company in the build up to European Capital of Culture in 2008.
Equally at home on the big stage, the local sailing club or the village hall, the five singers play guitars, banjos, mandolin, melodeon, whistles, drum and concertina as required. They can usually call upon friends to provide ceili dances and hornpipes. See them at all the River Festivals and on the "Glaciere" sailing ship at the Albert Dock in Liverpool during the summer months. Their songs are currently available on 4 maritime/comedy CD's on sale on Merseyside.
