Fisherman's Friends Live at The Regal
- 180 minutes
With a film based on their incredible true story about to hit cinema screens, the Fisherman’s Friends are getting ready to hit the road for a night of live music at The Regal next spring!
Fisherman's Friends are an 8-piece Cornish singing group, and became the first traditional folk act to land a UK Top Ten Album. The original ‘buoy band’, bound together by lifelong friendship and shared experience, have met on the Platt on the harbour in their native Port Isaac to sing the songs of the sea for more than a quarter of a century.
They sang for HM The Queen at her Diamond Jubilee celebrations in 2012, they were selected to sing for Prince Charles & Camilla during their 2016 tour of Cornwall and were honoured with the Good Tradition Award at the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2011.
Other standout performances include the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury Festival, Cambridge Folk Festival, Beautiful Days, Sidmouth Folk Week, Looe Music Festival, Costa del Folk in Portugal and the BBC Proms in the Park.
“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.”
The story of Fisherman's Friends 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 UK 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 (2013), Proper Job (2015) and Sole Mates (2018) and every year play to tens of thousands of fans at home and abroad.
The Fisherman’s Friends are: fisher brothers John and Jeremy Brown; writer/shopkeeper Jon Cleave; potter Billy Hawkins; 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 and film maker Toby Lobb.
