Arrr, me hearties! The first intake of singing pirates for Hal Willner’s Rogues Gallery show in Dublin on July 18 have been announced.

Those enlisted by the much-experienced producer include Teddy Thompson, Waterson Carthy, Gavin Friday, Pere Ubu’s David Thomas, the awesome Julie Fowlis, Baby Gramps, Ed Harcourt, Rachel Unthank and The Winterset. More will be added in the coming weeks.

This live show, based around Willner’s album of pirate ballads, sea songs and shanties, is part of this year’s Analog festival in Dublin’s docklands, which also features Tortoise, Efterklang, Silje Nes, Liars (video below) and Taraf De Haidouks.
