Based on the Cornish side of the beautiful Tamar Valley, Barrett’s Privateers formed through the joy of acapella singing. Since forming in 2019, the group have been honoured to perform at a range of events from the Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival, 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. 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. A new favourite venue in 2023 and 2024 was Carnglaze, where lighting, sound and the Caverns themselves, proved an incredible experience for both Barrett’s and the audience. A new album was recorded at Cube in April.

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.

The bar will be open on the day and pre-booked pasties are available at point of booking.
