Mains’l Haul


From just along the Essex coast in Maldon, Mains’l Haul are a group of experienced singers and musicians who perform regularly at local maritime events. Sea shanties are working songs designed to impart rhythm to motivate sailors for the hard-strenuous physical exertion required to sail wind driven ships in the late eighteenth early nineteenth century. Some of Mains’l Haul have experience of seafaring but now avoid any form of strenuous physical exertion with a passion. Only one of the crew remembers the late nineteenth century.
