Never miss another 'Fisherman's Friends' show
This event takes place at The Sage Gateshead, which has achieved Gold Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
The Fisherman's Friends are shanty singers from Port Isaac who have delighted visitors and locals there for more than 15 years. The group mesh their voices in an incredibly rousing and joyful set of shanties and Cornish folk songs.
Each and every member of this unique group are or have been fishermen, lifeboat men and coastguards (as well as builders, artisans, hoteliers, and shop keepers) in Port Isaac. They’ve known each other since childhood and learnt their powerful brand of Cornish harmony singing at the local Methodist chapel – now the pottery of Fisherman's Friend Billy Hawkwins (baritone), where the group get together with a crate of ale and a good deal of bonhomie to rehearse their repertoire and try out new songs.
