 Penzance in Cornwall, played host to 14,000+ pirates aiming to beat the Guinness World record attempt to have the most pirates in one place on thre planet at one time on Monday, with Cornwall's own Pirateers awarded the prime slot of 4-00 pm to perform in the long weekends celebration, as the huge crowd maximised along the Penzance Promenade

In reality, with crowds estimated by police at nearer 20,000, suffering a day of rain, the Gods repented and the sun shone for the Pirateers who performed a 45 minute set with the clear favourite tracks: Last of the Pirateers, Tradewinds to Santiago, Ziggy Ziggy Ziggy.

With a huge crowd response to the Cornish dedicated Away Home and the classic favourite Cornish Pasty Song.

Finishing with Offshore Wind, the response was electric.

 A full professional video of the set will be edited soon. For now and a glimpse of the live finale from the front:

The Pirateers are a timeless band of English Pirate minstrel brothers with a special take on their music. With the massive drive of Mumford and Sons meets Fishermans Friends on fire.

All mixed with the freshness of the Lumineers and even a touch of Arcade Fire, but always monstrously individual, delivering massively commercial and incredibly catchy songs which will have you unbuckling your swash and singing in your sleep.

With a refreshing emphasis on comedy and colour, their hugely addictive hooks and seductively, sometimes annoyingly catchy material often takes a sideways bash at their roots in a world of maritime based folk, pop - rock, but also celebrates the beauty and magic of their historic homeland with great heart touching spectacle, enchanting melody & sensitive lyric.

With their first album 'Offshore Wind' now completed, the Pirateers is being developed for television where our oh so nice, failed pirate band find themselves by some strange quirk of nature

well out of their 18C waters and in way way too deep in the twenty first century. Our Pirate fish, are way out of their depth.

With original music penned by top British songwriters Dave Freeman and Chris Morris and celebs lining up to be in their music videos

the Pirateers are set to sail on a tidal wave.

Cornwall hides away one of England's best kept secrets of all time in the remarkable band of brothers they call the Pirateers. A fine musical band that many believe is a phenomenon which will be the biggest thing ever to come out of Cornwall. Bigger than the Monkees and zanier than the Goodies.

Cornwall and the History of its Pirates, 1300 to the present day

 

 

PIRATE VIDEO

SEYMAC

 

 When it comes to Cornish Pirates, the Cornish Pirates themselves, better known to the Cornish as the Pirateers who hale from from North Cornwall, are about the worst bunch of Pirate rabble ever to have pirateered from the coast of south west England

In historical terms, Cornwall has shared a vested interest in her pirate, smuggling and swashbuckling past, for Cornwalls huge tourist industry depends upon its legends and folk law and the Pirateers are more than that.

Cornish Pirates like these are few and far between in the annals of Cornish History and this is their story...

 

 

 From the cold dark ocean tumbling into Widemouth Bay near Bude on the north Cornwall coast, now one of the surfing capitals of Cornwall, pirates such as the Pirateers sailed the Celtic seas looking for booty and unknowing sailing vessels to prey upon.

Pirateer boarding in ancient times was rife in Cornwall's distant and misty past and Pirate treasure sank below the waves of the bay tied to ropes and weighed down to be hooked up when the Kings excise men were not around. So too were the unfortunate wreches who fell foul of the Pirate bands preying upon Cornish waters, with no vessel safe from their gaze and their greed.

 The greatest of the Cornish Pirates was undoubtedly and band of Pirates lead by the feared Posh Jon Black, the master Pirate of Cornwall who hailed from Poundstock a village just outside of the tourist sea side town of Bude and Stratton on the north Cornwall coast.

Posh Jon Black, rallied his pirate crews from across the county, earning for himself a formidable reputation as a fine leader of men, hoarder of Pirate treasure trove and a brave and fearless soldier of the deep.

Cornish history recalls many a wreck on a Widemouth breeze, plundered by her Pirateers. many a soul set adrift on the Atlantic by smugglers from her shores.

The notorious Cornish Pirates who served under the Pirate King Jon Black, the pirates front line, Scupper, Tregaskis and Morrish, joined Posh Jon the Pirate king of Cornwall and became his pirate crew extraordinere.  the pirate band couring the Cornish coast for any ship who may fall foul of their long brass pirate telescopes.

For a shot of heavy chain from her pirate cannons soon fell the masts of tall ships, clippers and brigantines of all nationalities. Including British shipping who chanced their arms and crossed Widemouth bay.

Of the feared Lundy Pirates north of Cornwalls coastline, and there were centuries of pirates based upon that desolate isle of rats off the north Cornish coast below Barnstaple and above the Hartland light near the Devon border, all revered the Pirate captain, Posh Jon Black though Posh Jon the Pirate King, never wanted to stay on Lundy or settle there, preferring to leave it to the scurvy crews of the Cornish bays.

No, for this pirates identity was a well kept secret in Cornwall, for by day he was a noble and dutiful Cornishman living in a fine house between Port Isaac and what now is the village and harbour of Rock facing the Doom Bar of Padstow.

 Here was a landowner and farmer to whom so many Cornish families turned and relied for their daily bread. It is said he employed over a hundred farm workers from the Port Isaac area and his ancillary fishing industry, the herring and sardines, the mackerel and cod landed at Padstow, Port Isaac, Port Gaverne and Boscastle along with his notable control over the Lobster and crab, grace Posh Jon Black not only the Cornish monopoly of the fishing villages, but the respect of all his Cornish employees and their families forever.

By night though, masked and fettered in fine pirate garb, Posh Jon Black became the terror of the Cornish seas, The Hartland Highwayman. the Mevagissy Master, the terror of Tintagel and the jewel in the Crown of the Celtic hoards.
