All the details...
Pictured above is the venue that hosted our first Glasgow Shanty Day:in 2019 the three-masted barque Glenlee, at her berth outside the Riverside Museum in Glasgow. Built at Port Glasgow and launched in 1896, she was one of the very last generation of sail-powered cargo ships, made entirely of steel (even the masts). She worked as a cargo ship out of ports in Britain and Italy, right up until the 1920s, before being acquired by the Spanish navy for use as a training ship. In 1993, as a forlorn hulk bound for the scrap-heap, she was rescued and brought home to Glasgow for restoration, where she can be visited for free all year round.
September 2019 saw the launch of the first very successful Glasgow Shanty Festival held aboard the maginificent tall ship 'Glenlee'.
Alas, because of the very necessary Covid-19 lock-down restrictions we cannot repeat this until September 2021.
But instead we invite you to join the Glasgow Shanty Night online on Saturday 26th September 2020 7.30-11.00 as a FREE livestreamed event.
