Figurehead

Saturday Aug 28, 2021 - Monday Aug 30, 2021

Sun 29th: Molesworth Arms, 1pm; Near Barclays Bank, Molesworth St, 2.30pm
Mon 30th: FAR Stage, 11am; Saltbox 1pm

Figurehead is a powerful all-female acapella group based in Cornwall who share a mutual love of shanties, songs of the sea and shorelines.

They’ve built up a considerable reputation at festivals in Cornwall and beyond for delivering a great sound and act, full of life and cheekiness.

Just ask the crowds at Falmouth Shanty Festival, Eden Pasty Championships, Priddy, Port Elliot and Looe Music Festivals! Or, of course, in their many appearances at Cornwall Folk Fest.

They claim that if it contains a reference to water, however slight, they consider it fair game!

They have recently added experienced singer and caller Gill Jolly to complete the five-voice line-up.
