The Chantey Cabin

The Home Port For All Your Maritime Music

    Why not come aboard ?


The Chantey Cabin was started back in 1996 to help shanty artists with a central point of sale at festivals and a website.

This was before CD’s and artists certainly did not have websites of their own!!! Over the years’ groups have split up, singers have passed over the Bar! Many others have sold out of some of their recordings and replaced them with new CDs.

The crew of the Chantey Cabin are not getting any younger and so we have decided to reduce the number of recordings we keep in house.

We will still have a lot in stock but if not we will forward orders to the artists concerned.

If you cannot find  a recording or an artist  please email us as our collection  of books and recording of shanty’s is very large  and love to help finding that lost music.


It is with great sorrow that Jai passed over the BAR in September 2017 and will be very sadly missed by us all.

But we welcome on board  the (Handsome) Cabin Boy BRADLEY who will be setting sail on his first voyage at the Harwich Shantey Festival in Oct 2017
