Saltash Songs & Shanties Festival supports the Keychange Movement and aims for gender equality in our events programme.

Saltash Songs & Shanties Festival is produced by Salt Arts CIC and Directed by Lindsay Endean.  
Lindsay set up Salt Arts to make things she loves with people she thinks are fab. Originally trained as a musician (viola) her arts career has taken her from orchestras in Oxford to libraries in Croydon, theatres in China and shops in Covent Garden, and more recently on to commemorations in Plymouth and music in Cornwall. High points include opening an arts venue in a former drugs factory and watching 30,000 people follow a very large dragon around Plymouth (these two things are not connected). The single low point was probably eating an insect-flour cookie in the name of Public Engagement.

Lindsay lives in Saltash, Cornwall with two children, a husband and a cat and any spare time is for sailing or playing the viola.
