Online broadcast of the concert


La Nef and Vancouver’s choir Chor Leoni combine for Shanties!, a high-energy digital concert featuring shanties, haunting laments, and rollicking songs of the sea. This free (with RSVP) digital concert will premiere online March 6th at 8 PM and run through March 14th. Enjoy sea shanties as you’ve never heard them before as La Nef and the 50+ male voices of Chor Leoni bring these rollicking sea songs to life.

This cross-Canada collaboration is the perfect opportunity to connect digitally with friends and family and share the current sea shanty craze, complete with opportunities to sing along. Originally presented in February 2020 at the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts by Early Music Vancouver, Shanties! was filmed in high definition and glorious sound to bring the excitement of this highly popular concert into homes across the world. Audiences may rewatch this free concert experience as often as they like during the show’s week-long digital run.

The musicians from La Nef recorded many of these same sea shanties for Ubisoft’s highly popular Assassin’s Creed game series. These soundtracks began the sea shanty craze back in 2012, and La Nef has been touring this program ever since. The concert features La Nef Seán Dagher (cittern and voice), David Gossage (flute and voice), Bill Gossage (bass and voice), Nelson Carter (violin, percussion and voice) and singers Nils Brown, Michiel Schrey and Clayton Kennedy.  This digital concert captures a one-night-only collaboration where Chor Leoni joined La Nef to expand their popular music with brand new arrangements and vocal orchestrations by Musical Director Seán Dagher.

Shanties! is the perfect opportunity to connect with friends and family wherever they are to share in the joy of shanties and even sing along.



Multi-instrumentalist and composer, Andrew Wells-Oberegger, accompanied by several guest musicians, will present an album of his instrumental compositions.
