Who are the Missin' Tackle?

Following the success of ‘The Provident’ play in Brixham Theatre in 2015, a group of lads decided, as they had had so much fun singing together they would form a shanty group. Thus, 'Missin’ Tackle’ came together with a very varied musical background.

With very varied backgrounds in singing it is the camaraderie of it all that draws them together. Their love of the sea and the very different way of life in days gone by is brought together in shanties and sea songs including some old favourites that everyone will want to sing along to.

Four of the crew are members of local male voice choirs. In the past twelve months, they have enjoyed singing in Brixham and beyond singing for many local charities and good causes. Like many shanty crews, their free annual quay concerts in the summer down under the Old Fish Quay on Brixham Harbour raise funds for local charities and good causes and are always very well received.

This year they are appearing in shanty festivals in Cockwood - Starcross, Port Issac, Barry Island - South Wales, Falmouth and Mevagissey.

Missin’ Tackle Shanty Crew are looking forward to their concert in Kents Cavern with its long associated history with piracy and smuggling in days gone by.
