The Dockyard Rush - Sea Folk Sing Choir

Submitted by: Ideas T.

Original Song

The Dockyard Rush means a lot us at Ideas Test and to everyone involved, as it brings back happy memories of being part of something wonderful.
Part of our Sea Folk Sing project in 2019, the song was written and sung by the Sea Folk Sing Choir – people aged 55+ from across Medway and Swale in North Kent, and local musicians & songwriters.
This song is about the people who worked in local dockyards in Chatham and Sheerness.
During 2020, we ran Zoom workshops to keep the Sea Folk Sing legacy alive and to keep spirits up during Lockdown, which was also nominated for an Heart For The Arts 2021 award.
We plan to perform all the Sea Folk Sing songs live at local festivals and events in autumn 2021.
