The Anvil

  • Tickets: £28 (includes £3 booking fee)

​The original sole men, Cornwall’s tightest band of brothers and best-known musical export, the Fisherman’s Friends, will be coming back to The Anvil.
 
In a show that’s guaranteed to warm the cockles, the group’s eight good men brew up a heady mix of hearty song, salty banter and tall tales from the high seas that involves the audience at every turn.
 
As well as meeting up with old friends, the Fisherman’s Friends are sure to make plenty of new ones as they embark on their latest tour, stopping here at The Anvil along the way.
 
We can’t wait to get back to performing live – it’s the reason we started the Fisherman’s Friends in the first place,” says MC and bass man Jon Cleave, he of the flamboyant moustaches.
 
Bound by lifelong friendship and a love of Cornwall’s stirring songs of the sea, this most convivial choral collective will showcase a fresh haul of old favourites as well as new songs from their latest album Sole Mates.
 
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.
