Ten fisherman from Cornwall are signed by Universal Records and achieve a top ten hit with their debut album of Sea Shanties.
Bound together by lifelong friendship and shared experience for more than 25 years the Fisherman’s Friends have met on the Platt (harbour) in their native Port Isaac to raise money for charity, singing the traditional songs of the sea handed down to them by their forefathers. This film is based on the group’s discovery and their signing to a major record label. The film was written and produced by the team behind 2018’s British hit film ‘Finding Your Feet’ and also features music from the Fisherman’s Friends.
The Fisherman’s Friends have been widely credited with starting the revival of interest in shanty-style choral singing but a cornerstone of their success has been their constantly evolving and expanding repertoire. The strongest belief that the band have always held dear is that friendship will always come first, with music a very close second.
