Dorset Wrecks were formed in 2013 and our first gig happened when 5 of the initial 6 members sang on MV Freedom.
Since then we have done more gigs every year with a total of 51 gigs in 2017. We now have 12 members and we rehearse weekly at the Old Town Hall, Weymouth. We have sung at both weddings and funerals, as well as at Camp Bestival and many other festivals too.
In 2016 we recorded our first CD of sea shanties and songs of the sea entitled Bright Eyed ‘N’ Stiff, alluding to how to determine their freshness when buying fish. 2018 is already appearing to be another busy year, and we are contemplating a second CD as our repertoire of songs of the sea and sea shanties is growing steadily, together with some original songs of our own.
