Warp Four




Warp Four Soundings

After a wild shanty singing weekend in Galway with Liam Clancy the groups agreed to work jointly on a shanty/maritime album. This project took another year to get to the planning phase and the group by then had reverted to the Pat, Jack and Niall threesome.

The line up for the album included Pat, Jack and Niall. Then Sean Laffey of Jenkins Ear joined the CD project and continued singing with the group after the release of the CD and up until the group's disbandment in October 1999.

Two albums were released, both available on the Helvic Music label.
