Bound together by lifelong friendship and shared experience for more than 25 years, the Fisherman’s Friends sing the traditional songs of the sea handed down to them by their forefathers. Despite their musical adventures, the band can still be found working their day-jobs and enjoying life on the North Cornish Coast. And they are always welcome guests at Sidmouth!

2019 saw the release of ‘Fisherman’s Friends’ a film based on the group’s discovery and signing to a major record label and a soundtrack album, ‘Keep Hauling – Music from the Movie’.
