Roaring Fifties

Since 2006 The Roaring Fifties started to sing with a litle group of friends. Now the group has 19 enthousiastic singers of the maritime music.
They like to come to Workum to sing and tell the stories about the hard live aboard.
Originally it were traditional songs from big sailing ships and where the shantyman sang his song. By the years they found more sea songs, which told about the hard live at sea, far away countries, and homesickness and desire. And off course the women, the love and the liquor.

In the ten years they excists they perform at many Festivals in the Netherland but also visited Vegesack (Germany) in 2013.
