 FRIDAY , APRIL 17     


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 in February 2019, punk-rock-folk-pirate band JollyRoger are already taking the south-west by storm, gigging port, bow & starboard. Soon getting booked for the likes of Boardmasters Festival & performing live on BBC RADIO CORNWALL & TCR RADIO. One year later, in February 2020, they had a sell-out first year show. They were then asked to support one of their musical influences, The Rumjacks. Next, the three were approached by Channel 4 and were filmed playing their first single '21st Century Pirate' for the show 'Britain's Most Historic Towns', which is scheduled to air in June 2020.

They have built a loyal fan base and get regular slots at reputable venues and festivals including hosting Bloodstock Festivals Metal 2 the Masses Final, Brixham Pirate Day & winning a newcomer slot at the biggest medieval festival in Europe - Mediaval Festival in Selb, Germany.

In September 2019, JollyRoger released their first, home recorded EP 'Everyday Pirate' (Here’s a link to their 5 track EP on Spotify).

Charity EP 'Silent Mountain' came in November 2019 made in memory of family member, Christopher. A community gig boat was made in his honour and JollyRoger sang the EP during the launch, with half of the profits going to charity sadsuk.org.uk.

JollyRoger comprises of brother & sister, Jae Dennis (guitar/ ukelele/ harmonica) & Samantha Hannah (mandolin/guitar) plus Kynan Sandles on the lesser-seen acoustic bass guitar, all of which grew up in the pirate haven of Penzance. These guys are family and their connection on stage adds that little extra to their music and performances as they naturally use the audience and foot stomping as their percussion. 

JollyRoger have just released their self-titled debut album which they aim to launch in May 2020! You can find out how to pre-order by visiting their Facebook.
