THE SOUTHERN OCEAN SEA BAND
Port Fairy’s own Southern Ocean Sea Band have been taking audiences on journeys into local historical stories and legends for 5 years now. They were born directly from the late Danny Spooner’s annual Shanties at the Wharf sessions. Inspired by their hometown, they produced and released their epic debut album Blood & Bones & Fins & Glory in 2017. The large and revolving line-up have since toured throughout regional Victoria, spreading their love of songs and shanties far and wide. The band cite The Fairytale of Port Fairy concert in 2018 as a career highlight, performing three songs and backing up Steve Poltz and Rebecca Barnard. This year they will be airing new material to launch their latest album, as well as old crowd favourites.
