Sea Songs, Shanties & 
Songs of Love, Lust & Loose Living

About Flash Jack

Image 02

Our repertoire includes old & new shanties & ballads, songs from a woman’s perspective, tunes associated with the coast & seafaring (both at home & abroad) & songs from the land reflecting the link between songs from coastal districts & those sung by seafarers.
The group was formed by combining some previous members of the late lamented shanty crew 'Hanging Johnny' with other well respected singers & musicians, which makes us nine performers in all and gives us the flexibility to meet the needs of a smaller venue, or a large stage such as a theatre or festival.

We are based in East Cornwall & Plymouth, Devon - but like a good wine or a mellow old rum - we do travel quite well!
The themes of many of our songs give us the alternative title for our performances:
Songs of Love, Lust & Loose Living!
