Fisherman’s Friends Appear on The One Show

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Show business is all in a day’s work for Port Isaac’s Fisherman’s Friends, who recently appeared alongside Stephen Fry on the BBC’s The One Show. The gang chatted to presenters Matt Baker and Alex Jones about the origins of sea shanties before putting in a sterling performance of ‘A Drop of Nelson’s Blood’.

The past couple of years have seen the ten-man group rise to stardom, with performances at Glastonbury Festival and Cambridge Folk Festival to name but a few highlights. But their heart-rending harmonies are no great secret here in Port Isaac, as we have been enjoying their regular portside concerts for some 15 years. This tradition continues throughout the summer months, when our local lads return home most Friday evenings to delight crowds who gather on the Platt.

Now no matter where you live in the country, you can experience the authentic Cornish sounds of Fisherman’s Friends. Their nationwide tour kicks off on 22 February, when the boys will be treating St Alban’s to a repertoire of their favourite sea shanties. After that they travel to York, Burnley and Liverpool, followed by performances across the South West. Don’t miss your chance to see Port Isaac’s beloved sons in action!
