About the Shifty Sailors: Formed in 1993 the Shifty Sailors have been featured singers at Festivals, Events, and Celebrations at Seaports on both coasts of the US, Hawaii and Europe. While they sing a few traditional sea Shanties, their performances celebrate almost anything dealing with the sea. This includes lighthouses, shipwrecks, fishing, military, whales, folk songs, and even a few drinking songs! Accompanied by group leader Vern Olsen’s “Squeeze-box” and guitars, the Shifties have a style all their own. The group of 20 men reside on Whidbey Island and have recorded five popular CDs.
