The Southern Ocean Sea Band is a misfit bunch of lads and lassies bringing tales and legends in song and shanty. Port Fairy born and bred musicians have joined forces to retell their town’s history through their ambitious project The Southern Ocean Sea Band. With a motley crew of musicians in tow, the band have become Port Fairy’s answer to The Pogues. Their new album, ‘Blood & Bones and Fins & Glory’ offers an accessible historic edge that leaves audiences deeply knowledgeable and enriched by the legacy of their home and its many characters.
