Barnacle Buoys

Sea Shanty Singers

Barnacle Buoys is a non-profit group of a cappella sea shanty singers based in North Somerset. We exist to enjoy our craft, entertain our audiences and raise money for our chosen charities. Our principle charities are the Childrens Hospice South West and the RNLI.
