Old Time Sailors are back in port for the Fringe this April

* The Old Time Sailors will be shipping in for a gig at St Collen's in April.

A musical group with a real difference which made a big splash when it last appeared in Llangollen is to return as a taster to this year's Fringe Festival.

The Old Time Sailors was a hit when it performed for the Fringe at Ysgol Dinas Bran a year ago.

And on Saturday April 22 at 7pm it will be at St Collen's Church.

The Old Time Sailors is a flashmob musical show designed to take the audience back in time through an unforgettable trip to the 19th century.

Every member of the audience receives a copy of the Sunday Sailor, the group own newspaper-shaped programme which includes the lyrics to all their songs so they can sing along.

Making up the crew are 17 musicians playing fully unplugged to ensure the most authentic experience.

Their repertoire includes over 30 songs and tunes encouraging the audience to sing and dance along.

Fringe chair Paul Keddie said: "The Old Time Sailors are a big group that sing and dance with a great deal of energy – a first for the church, I believe.

"We have had a few gigs at St Collen's in the past, and it has proved to be a great venue, especially for acoustic sets, as the sound reverberates well in the building."
