New Zealand's Most 'Sea Worthy' Shanty Group™ have been belting out traditional sea songs from Aotearoa, France, Spain, the UK and more, for 3 years now. Sailors and landlubbers from across the country have been battered by the rousing chorus of this two-man tempest of pure shanty. The W.S.S.S believe that 'a shanty shared is a shanty savoured', so they pass out shanty song sheets to one and all so people can sing along,

The W.S.S.S comprise Vorn Dont le Père Etait Marin, from the indie pop band Vorn, and Lake South from the electro pop bands Urbantramper/Lake South. Vorn is on squeeze box duties, while Lake strums the git-fiddle. Rousing harmonies and raucous foot-stomping abound!

The W.S.S.S have recently returned from France where they performed at Paimpol, one of the biggest sea shanty festivals in the world.
