Australia’s premier Shanty group, the Roaring Forties will be there to entertain you. They are a "highly characterful" group of veteran harmony singers with a shipload of songs from the sea, traditional, contemporary and everything in between. They invite participation with their rousing choruses. The Forties joining you this Australia day are Don Brian, Tom Hanson, Chris Maltby, Margaret Walters and Robert Boddington.
