Captain Morgan’s Rum Do


Captain Morgan’s Rum Do originated several years ago when local muso Roy Mette, whose background is rock, R&B and songwriting on his own account, became interested in the life stories of the (real) pirates of the Golden Age (late 17th/18th centuries). He began writing lyrics about the lives of the pirates and the pirate lifestyle, and feeling he needed to introduce a more folk style into his pirate sound he co-opted the three members of Triangle, a vocal trio well versed in performing traditional song. The ensemble then went on to explore other pirate themes including the history of the river Thames based pirates. The current line-up consists of guitar, vocals and percussion, though other artists/instruments are used from time to time.
