There will be a special guest appearance at the launch by Toby Barelli - King Size Slim.
The aim of the CD, recorded over two Thursday sessions in November last year, is to try to capture the unique atmosphere generated at the weekly sessions which continue to attract an enthusiastic audience of locals and visitors.
The RX Shantymen are a popular local group who also perform regularly in Europe and on HMS Victory and HMS Warrior in Portsmouth.
They ‘opened’ for the well-known group ‘Fishermen’s Friends’ last concert in Hastings and were subsequently invited to sing at their local venue in Port Isaac in Cornwall.
