In the dark days of communism, one of the only ways for young Poles to travel was to join the sailing association. The songs they heard from tall ship crews around the world quickly became their songs of resistance and freedom. Today there are hundreds of young shanty groups in Poland who continue to sing and write songs of the sea to remember the struggles and sacrifices of their parents and grandparents. 5 man Brasy are one of the finest groups to emerge from this tradition having wowed audiences across Europe in the last three years with their spell binding arrangements of sea songs sung in English and Polish.

Nostalgia, humour and song flow in equal proportions to the pints of ‘black stuff’, as the cast produce a memorable nights theatre that will send the audience home with a tear in their eye and a smile on their lips.
