Event details

With a film based on their incredible true story about to hit cinemas screens, the Fisherman’s Friends are getting ready to hit the road and return to The Apex.

The original ‘buoy band’, bound together by lifelong friendship and shared experience.

For more than a quarter of a century they have met on the Platt on the harbour in their native Port Isaac to sing the songs of the sea.

It’s nearly ten years since Island Records persuaded the Fisherman’s Friends to sign the record deal that saw their album Port Isaac’s Fisherman’s Friends sell Gold as they became the first traditional folk act to land a UK top ten album.

The story of how that happened is now the subject of a hit British film starring Daniel Mays, James Purefoy, Tuppence Middleton and Noel Clarke. Directed by Chris Foggin the film opens in cinemas on 3 December and is already tipped to be a feel good hit of the year.

Cornwall’s best-known musical export, the Fisherman’s Friends have also been the subject of an ITV documentary, released the hit albums 'One and All', 'Proper Job' and 'Sole Mates', and every year play to tens of thousands of fans at home and abroad.

“Singing to a live audience is why we started the group in the first place”, says extravagantly moustachioed MC and bass man, Jon Cleave. “That’s why we’re champing at the bit to get back out on the road”.
