Internationally acclaimed 21st century shanty singer, Chris Ricketts returns after a 7 year silence with an album of shanties and self penned songs called 'Songs In The Key Of Sea'.

‘A Cover A Day’ was created at the start of lockdown during the Corona Virus. Chris uploaded a cover for every single day that we were in our houses. These videos included collaborations with some amazing musicians and also solo performances. The idea behind the covers was to bring joy and smiles to those struggling.
