22. A Shanty Show Special: Brise-Glace at the Fundy Sea Shanty Festival
Show Notes

Brise-Glace (Icebreaker) is a Montreal-based quartet who sing maritime folk from Quebec, the Canadian Maritimes, Brittany and North America. Comprised of Quebecers Jean-Francois and Antoine and Bretons Gwenn and Alexandre, they have a fascinating take on shanties as an international music and one that intersects many other musical genres.
They're also the hosts of (...ahem) the world's second most popular shanty podcast, “Bordel de Mer”, which you should definitely check out. We had the chance to sit down with them for a few songs and beers and learn a lot about French "chants marins" at the Fundy Sea Shanty Festival in August 2022.
