About Solomon Browne

‘Solomon Browne’ tells the story of the Penlee Lifeboat Disaster in 1981, in which the entire crew of the lifeboat Solomon Browne lost their lives, along with the crew and passengers of the Union Star they had set out to save.

Launching the RNLI’s SOS Day on 24 September, Seth said:

‘When I was working on my album in December 2006 it was the 25th anniversary of the Penlee lifeboat disaster, which inspired Solomon Browne. I was only young at the time of the disaster, but my father (journalist, Geoff) covered the story. The song is about the bravery and courage of those eight volunteer lifeboatmen who went to sea and lost their lives. I hope we are able to raise some funds for this fantastic charity.’
