Teignmouth in Devon is famous for its local music festivals.  We always go down for the Jazz Festival in September and usually for the Folk Festival of Morris dancing and music.  But we were also there for the Classical Music and Folk Song Festivals earlier this year.

One reason we visited Teignmouth this month was for the Sea Shanty Festival.  Sadly, our friends were unable to take part this year, so here's one excerpt of the Tavy Tars set at the Oystercatcher in which they would have featured.
