The Fisherman’s Friends blu-ray is (review here)based on the heart-warming true story of a group of Cornish fishermen who were signed by the legendary Island Records (label to artists including Amy Winehouse, Bob Marley and U2) and went on to score a UK top ten album. Starring Daniel Mays, James Purefoy, Tuppence Middleton, David Hayman, Dave Johns, and Noel Clarke, FISHERMAN’S FRIENDS was shot on location in Cornwall
A fast-living, cynical London music executive (Daniel Mays) heads to a remote Cornish village on a stag weekend where he’s pranked by his boss (Noel Clarke) into trying to sign a group of shanty singing fishermen (led by James Purefoy). He becomes the ultimate ‘fish out of water’ as he struggles to gain the respect or enthusiasm of the unlikely boy band and their families who value friendship and community over fame and fortune. As he’s drawn deeper into the traditional way of life he’s forced to re-evaluate his own integrity and ultimately question what success really means.
Bound together by lifelong friendship and shared experience, for more than 25 years the Fisherman’s Friends have met on the harbour in their native Port Isaac, to raise money for charity by singing traditional songs of the sea (Sea Shanties) handed down to them by their forefathers.
Their 2010 album “Port Isaac’s Fisherman’s Friends” was certified Gold as they became the first traditional folk act to land a UK top ten album. They sang at the Diamond Jubilee celebrations, released an additional two hit albums, played at Glastonbury Festival in 2011 and were honoured with the Good Tradition Award at the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
