Remembering Oliver Hare and his shanty singing

On 14th February 2017, Chris and Ann lost their wonderful son, Oliver, to suicide. A charity, Olly’s Future – – has been set up in his memory. You can see Olly in happier times singing shanties from a boat on the River Ouse at Lewes in July 2015. Olly takes the lead in singing ‘A Rovin” at 5:35 This event took place to promote the Secret Shore project, which lead directly to the formation of the Secret Shore Singers and the Duck Pond Sailors shanty group.
