Stuns’ls – formed from Mevagissey, Charlestown and Truro Cornish Pilot Gig rowing clubs. Our name, “Stuns’ls”, is sailor’s slang for the Studding Sail, an extra sail that can be hauled out on a square-rigged vessel’s yardarm to run in light winds, and features in one of our earliest songs, “Old Maui”.
We are definitely a light-hearted bunch who don’t take life too seriously, and have a lust for harmonies, always seeking out that extra note. Over the last 2 years we have had the honour of singing for Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, played a part in Rick Stein’s Cornwall (2021) and are the voices for Visit Cornwall’s G7 campaign that will be coming out in June 2021.
For us there is nothing better than to share in the enjoyment of Shanties and Cornish folk music, each song tells a story that has been handed down over the years, and we have made it our goal to make sure that the stories are heard, while putting a smile on everyone’s face at the same time.
