Batten down your hatches and prepare to weigh anchor!

Whiskey Boat, a FNQ rock shanty band, lures you like a sirens call. The lasses from Whiskey Boat, and their token manservant bassist, ensures a toe tapping experience with spilling harmonies, ballads of old, and heart starter jigs.

Whiskey Boat, with their nautical theme, have created catchy rhythms, soaring flute and tin whistle, vibrant violin, that weave amongst three-part harmonies.
Telling tales of love and loss, war, strife, redemption and sorrow, sisters Lauren and Melissa Butler write piratey jigs and ballads to interweave with folk indie rock classics.

You can find Whiskey Boats original releases on all the downloadable online platforms Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music etc.
