Thanks to the small film with a big heart that shares their name, the story of the original Cornish ‘buoy band’ is known around the world – bound by shared experience, for 40 years they have met on the Platt on the harbour in their native Port Isaac to sing the songs of the sea.
Cornwall’s best-known musical export, The Fisherman’s Friends became the first ever traditional folk act to land a UK top ten album with their Gold selling debut. They have continued to release hit albums, play to thousands of fans home and abroad and were honoured with the Good Tradition Award at the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
The Fisherman’s Friends are: lobster fisherman Jeremy Brown; writer/ shopkeeper Jon Cleave; 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; film maker Toby Lobb and the new boy, former ambulance driver Pete Hicks.
