Never seen these guys live before and will certainly try to see them again as we both found them great fun. We live 120 miles away so it won't be too often unless they are performing closer to us. They've done Glastonbury this year and they are doing Sidmouth Folk Festival on Friday 29th July. Great fun.

You will not be dissapointed to see these men singing their sea shanty songs either in concert or in their local village of Port Isaac on a Friday night during the summer months situated on the beach with the backdrop of the beautiful Port Isaac Harbour. A truly memorable experience and great atmosphere.

Arrived in Port Isaac on Friday and while having dinner was told that the Fishermans Friends would be singing down in the harbour and this was the last night that they would be playing so after finishing our meal we walked down to hear them. There was a lot of people watching them but managed to get close to actually... More

Fantastic evening in the Open Air Theatre in the park. All tickets sold out, wonderful singing and good, earthy sense of humour. Looking forward to next time!

Totally fabulous performance last night at the Harbour. Lovely atmosphere and perfect weather. A brilliant end to our holiday and an absolute must for your visit. The guys sing mist Friday evenings in the summer. Join the throng, get a cold beer and enjoy some great great music! Love it

We arrived at Port Isaac on a foggy May Friday afternoon. After waiting for our friends to arrive at the cottage, we were settling down in the lounge room when the sound of tuneful voices drifted up from the Platt. Then I remembered the YouTube clips of the Fisherman's Friends and realised it was Friday night! We raced down the... More
