|Martin and Shan sing together in harmony, drawing from a repertoire of English traditional songs, particularly those collected by Sabine Baring-Gould in Devon and Cornwall – though they also slip in a few of the songs that Martin has written. Martin has spent many years researching Baring-Gould’s life and work and is an acknowledged authority on that folk song collection. Shan discovered Cecil Sharp’s collection when she was at school and has used song extensively in her work as a speech and language therapist with children who have severe learning difficulties.

|Nordet's members are all sailors. They marry traditional Breton a cappella songs, working songs of the Atlantic coast, and the north of Scotland, plus traditional anad contemporary compositions. They all play traditional instruments with great panache. They have been singing since their adolescence in all the festivals along the coast of Brittany and in many European venues and festivals, most recently in Ireland. The group officially represented France several times, notably in The Netherlands during the International Shanty Festival for the 400th anniversary of the Dutch East India Company. Nordet's website|
