From the deep, resonating notes of the father and son bass to the high notes of the girls, Barrett’s Privateers have delighted audiences throughout Cornwall and well beyond with their broad, rich harmonies.
Based on the Cornish side of the beautiful Tamar Valley, Barrett’s Privateers formed with the desire to maintain their tradition of singing in pubs, whilst creating more polished performances to bring their entertaining brand of acapella singing to brand new audiences. Since forming in 2019, the group have been honoured to perform at a range of events from the Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival, to singing under the Christmas garland at Cotehele, to the highly acclaimed Rock Oyster Festival.
2022 was a fantastic year for Barrett’s Privateers. In May, they recorded their debut album, Shed No Tears, at the prestigious Cube Studios and in August, they represented Cornwall at the Festival Interceltique de Lorient in Brittany along with seven other Celtic nations, performing each night to a crowd of up to 10,000 people.
Songs of the sea, shanties, traditional folk, Cornish and mining songs all feature regularly on their set lists. Despite being so varied in age, Barrett’s Privateers take each song and make it their own, with each of the voices finding a way to complement its neighbour, through the joy of just singing together.
The power and harmony within their lively performances are both enjoyable and hugely entertaining, both on-stage, and, often, around the bar afterwards.
This event will be seated.
