This is a festival celebrating maritime music and song, and is new to the festival calendar. It is organised by the Waterford Sea Shanty Group "Hooks and Crookes". This group got together for the Tall Ships visit to Waterford in 2005, and they haven’t stopped singing since! The festival will be staged in hotels and bars along the Waterfront, and in other outdoor venues.
