Description:

Bound together by lifelong friendship and shared experience for more than 20 years, the Fisherman’s Friends have always performed on the Platt (harbour) in their native Port Isaac to raise money

for charity, by singing the traditional songs of the sea handed down to them by their forefathers. 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 two more hit albums, sang for HM The Queen at her Diamond Jubilee celebrations in 2012 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 and 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.
