The Ballina Whalers

A Mad Dog Folk presentation

The Ballina Whalers are Pete Truin, Jamie Doe and Sam Brookes – three musical barnacles clinging to the creaking hull of a musical tradition stretching back over hundreds of years. Using just their voices they explore ballads, shanties and seafaring songs that tell tales of whaling ships, lost loves, roaring storms and hardship out at sea.

Fast becoming one of the most sought after bands on the UK folk scene, known as much for their heart-rending three part harmonies as their lusty approach to singing shanties.  The last few years have seen them playing folk clubs, harbour sides, beaches, boat sheds and festivals up and down the country as well as regular invitations to perform overseas.

“Stunning voices that blend so beautifully, a real knock out” – Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2
