Fisherman's Friends

Fisherman's Friends

Details

Bound together by lifelong friendship and shared experience for more than 25 years the Fisherman’s Friends have met on the Platt (harbour) in their native Port Isaac to raise money for charity, singing the traditional songs of the sea handed down to them by their forefathers.

In 2010 they signed a major record deal and their album "Port Isaac’s Fisherman’s Friends" went Gold as they became the first traditional folk act to land a UK top ten album. Since then they’ve been the subject of an ITV documentary, released 2 more albums hit albums, played to hundreds of thousands of fans at home and abroad and were honoured with the Good Tradition Award at the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2011.

Other standout performances include the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury Festival, Cambridge Folk Festival, Beautiful Days, Sidmouth Folk Week, Looe Music Festival, Costa del Folk in Portugal and the BBC Proms in the Park.

The Fisherman’s Friends have been widely credited with starting the revival of interest in shanty-style choral singing but a cornerstone of their success has been their constantly evolving and expanding repertoire.

Don't miss this opportunity to see the Fisherman's Friends!
