Fisherman’s Friends Perform at Folk Awards

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

Port Isaac’s Fisherman’s Friends recently delivered a brilliant performance at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

The sea shanty singers have been entertaining crowds on the Platt for a number of years. Their local fame grew to international repute, however, when their soulful harmonies were discovered by Radio 2’s Johnnie Walker.

The group subsequently enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame, and were quickly signed to a major record label and performed at Glastonbury Festival. There is even a feature film about their story currently in production.

The Friends previously performed at the Radio 2 Folk Awards back in 2011, when they also won the Good Tradition Award.

The performance this year was one of their first without bandmate Trevor Grills, who tragically died alongside tour promoter Paul McCullen in an accident in February 2013. The Fisherman’s Friends have dedicated their second album, One And All, to Trevor’s memory.
