LYME BAY MOONRAKERS

Sea shanties, ballads and more

from the British Isles and beyond…

Welcome!

We are Lyme Bay Moonrakers, a new and exciting vocal and instrumental group, based in Lyme Regis.

A group of amateur singers and instrumentalists, our repertoire consists of original arrangements of songs (both new and old), sea shanties, ballads and other sea-related songs from the British Isles and beyond.

 

COVID-19 Update

We are now rehearsing outdoors in groups of six. If you are interested in joining us, we would love to hear from you! Membership is by audition and all ages are welcome. You can view our Prospective Members Pack here.

We look forward to hearing from you!
