The Band

"We are pirates on the ocean & that's where we belong. Only docking on the land, when the rum has gone"

THE TALE OF JOLLYROGER

Hailing from the pirate haven of Penzance, this fun, upbeat, pirate-folk band have hung up their cutlasses, exchanged their galleon for a land ship (named Hubert Cumberdale) and taken to a life of music.


Formed recently in 2019, JollyRoger are already taking the south-west by storm and gigging port, bow and starboard. Soon getting booked for the likes of Boardmasters Festival and performing on BBC RADIO CORNWALL and TCR RADIO.


They are described as ‘traditional yet exciting’ and are complemented on their funny and lively shows. JollyRoger are full of energy, take pride in their performances and are ‘bound to get your toes tapping’.


JollyRoger comprises of siblings Jae Dennis (guitar/ ukelele/ harmonica) & Samantha Hannah (mandolin/guitar) plus Kynan Sandles on the lesser-seen acoustic bass guitar. When all three sing together, they provide a ‘whistle wetting romp full of three part harmonies’. With a mixture of upbeat folk music, some original pirate material and some good old fashioned sea shanties, there’s something for everyone; they are bound to warm your cockles!

JollyRoger’s first EP ‘Everyday Pirate’ is out now on all major platforms. Here’s a link to their 5 track EP on Spotify and a link to their fun music video for ‘2 to the Blue’ on YouTube.


‘If you don’t like sea shanties, songs about drinking rum and shouting used as backing vocals then this probably isn’t for you but if you do have a sense of fun then jump on in, the water’s lovely’ Listen with Monger - Reviewing EP ‘Everyday Pirate’.


‘Great live band, high energy, fun & professional - if you’re looking for a band that will get the crowd jumping, here they are!!’ West Kernow Sounds - Podcast with Craig.
