Their 2021 version of ‘Wellerman’ began a sea shanty craze on social media – yes, the first viral tiktok stars to grace the barn stages of Purbeck Valley Folk Festival!

The Longest Johns
Having met and bonded over sea shanties across a kitchen table in their native Bristol a decade ago, The Longest Johns have reimagined many of folk’s classic songs while adding their own unique style of song writing to the melting pot to keep the flame of the tradition alive. In doing so, they have graced the stages of international folk festivals and toured the UK, Europe and North America.
