Albert Dock Folk Festival choir

Albert Dock Liverpool is inviting choirs and singers from across Merseyside to a one-of-a-kind performance.
The People’s Heritage project, running at Albert Dock this year, has commissioned an original sea shanty from Mersey Wave, inspired by dock’s unique heritage, as well as versions of two shanties collected from the SS Lancastrian in 1911.

Score for ‘Our Liverpool song’ is available here
Choirs will be able to take part in two performances: Sunday 28 August at 1pm and Friday 9 September at 7pm.
We are able to offer up to £200 per choir, per performance, as a contribution to travel expenses.
