Magwitch - Salty Songs from South of the Thames

Magwitch is Mary Barr and Liz Randall



They are both members of Travelling Folk and residents of the Seaford Folk Club and have a wide experience of singing, which they share in their workshops for voice development.

While singing with the Shellback Chorus, they dreamed of forming their own female shanty duo and so Magwitch was born, which is primarily, but not exclusively, a shanty duo.  They sing traditional and contemporary songs, many from the south east of England.

Magwitch have appeared at Broadstairs, Miskin, Upton, Walton Festivals and Harwich Shanty Festival where their irreverent approach and varied material has made them popular wherever they go.
