A 20-piece band specialising in traditional seafaring music will perform live at a harbourside venue this summer.

The Old Time Sailors will perform at The Stable in the heart of Falmouth's Custom House Quay area.

The band's music ranges from upbeat old folk to traditional sea shanty songs.

Dressed in realistic sea shanty attire, Old Time Sailors' 20 musicians aim to transport their audience to a 19th century sailing ship of the imagination.

Charley Paines, general manager of The Stable, said: "We are unbelievably excited to have Old Time Sailors perform on our terrace, for what is going to be a fantastic experience for all the family."

Pizzas and pints will be available for attendees ahead of the performance.

Under the leadership of Captain Nicholas Moffat, Old Time Sailors comprises 20 musicians playing more than 30 traditional instruments, for a repertoire of more than 40 songs.

The band performs unplugged to forge a dynamic and interactive experience.

The Falmouth Stable gig follows appearances at popular UK festivals including El Dorado in Herefordshire and Download Festival in Leicestershire.

Performances start from 7:30pm on Wednesday, July 17, Wednesday, August 7 and Wednesday, August 28, admission is free and no bookings are required.
