With a film based on their incredible true story about to hit cinemas screens, the Fisherman’s Friends are getting ready to hit the road for a string of live dates next spring.

The original ‘buoy band’, bound together by lifelong friendship and shared experience, for more than a quarter of a century they have met on the Platt on the harbour in their native Port Isaac to sing the songs of the sea.

“Singing to a live audience is why we started the group in the first place,” says extravagantly moustachioed MC and bass man Jon Cleave. “That’s why we’re champing at the bit to get back out on the road.”

It’s nearly ten years since Island Records persuaded the Fisherman’s Friends to sign the record deal that saw their album Port Isaac’s Fisherman’s Friends sell Gold as they became the first traditional folk act to land a UK top ten album.

The story of how that happened is now the subject of a hit British film starring Daniel Mays, James Purefoy, Tuppence Middleton and Noel Clarke. Directed by Chris Foggin the film opens in UK cinemas on 3 December and is already tipped

to be a feel good hit of the year.

Cornwall’s best-known musical export, the Fisherman’s Friends have also been the subject of an ITV documentary, released the hit albums One and All (2013), Proper Job (2015) and Sole Mates (2018) and every year play to tens of

thousands of fans at home and abroad.

The Fisherman’s Friends are: fisher brothers John and Jeremy Brown; writer/shopkeeper Jon Cleave; potter Billy Hawkins; smallholder and engineer John ‘Lefty’ Lethbridge; builder John McDonnell (a Yorkshireman who visited

Port Isaac more than 30 years ago and never left); Padstow fisherman Jason Nicholas and film maker Toby Lobb.
