The original sole men, Cornwall’s tightest band of brothers and its best-known musical export, the Fisherman’s Friends will be heading back on the road for a run of UK tour dates in November 2018.
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 - their seventh since they were discovered singing on the Platt on the Harbour at Port Isaac on Cornwall’s rugged Atlantic coast.
After signing with Island Records their album Port Isaac’s Fisherman’s Friends went gold, becoming the first traditional folk act to land a UK top ten album in the process. They have since been the subject of an ITV documentary, released the hit albums One and All (2013) and Proper Job (2015) and played to tens of thousands of fans at home and abroad, as well as the famous Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury.
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.
