We would like to confirm that tonight’s 7.30pm performance by Fisherman’s Friends will be taking place as advertised.
Following their Winter Warmer tour, renowned Cornish shanty singers Fisherman’s Friends have announced a UK tour for February 2020.
The original ‘buoy band’, bound together by lifelong friendship and shared experience, for 30 years the Fisherman’s Friends have met on the Platt on the harbour in their native Port Isaac to sing the songs of the sea. A decade ago they were persuaded to sign the record deal that saw their album Port Isaac’s Fisherman’s Friends go Gold as they became the first ever traditional folk act to land a UK top ten album.
The incredible true story of how that happened is told in the hit feel good movie of the year Fisherman’s Friends, starring Daniel Mays, James Purefoy, Tuppence Middleton and Noel Clarke, with cameo appearances from the group whose voices also appear on the soundtrack.
Heading out on a huge UK tour in 2020, expect a fresh catch of shanties and songs of the sea as well as a net full of nautical nonsense from Cornwall’s Saltiest Sea Dog singers.
