I came across The Sheringham Shantymen this evening while downloading some shanty songs. I'm an A.B. Seaman on a Norwegian Platform Supply Vessel and enjoy listening to shanty songs while sailing the North Sea.
I'm from the U.S. but have lived in Norway for the past 9 years. As well, I'm a descendant of the Upchers of Sheringham and surrounding Norfolk region, and my father is an avid "investigator" of our Upshur roots. I checked out your website and was surprised to see The Sheringham Shantymen's connection with the lifeboat 'Augusta' which was commissioned by Charlotte Upcher!
I hope to visit Sheringham one day with my father and see where our family hailed from. In the meantime, the voices of The Sheringham Shantymen will be heard on the bridge of MV Island Chieftain as long as I'm on watch...
