The original buoy band, the Fisherman’s Friends are back with a vengeance, getting ready to hit the road on tour with full catch of new material and some old favourites as well.
Bound together by lifelong friendship and shared experience for more than 20 years, the Fisherman’s Friends have met on the Platt in their native Port Isaac on Cornwall’s rugged north coast to raise money for charity by singing the traditional songs of the sea handed down to them by their forefathers.
In 2010 they signed a major record deal and 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 hit albums and played to tens of thousands of fans at home and abroad.
The Fisherman’s Friends are: brothers Julian, John and Jeremy Brown, writer, shopkeeper, bass man and moustachioed MC 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), fisherman Jason Nicholas and film maker Toby Lobb.
