Another Bloke Band sails into these parts - Port Isaac's Fishermen's Friends

Another recent "Quick Straw Poll" has prompted half a dozen blokes to sign up for a night out sussing out one of the most famous Bloke Bands in all these lands, Port Isaac's Fishermen's Friends.

Famous for singing on the quayside of this extraordinary Cornish village they were catapulted to a certain level of fame by a prominent record deal and have continued to make their livings as before as well as squeezing in visits to festivals and concert halls up and down the land.

They are performing at Cheltenham Town Hall on Tuesday 22nd November and a few of us will be there, singing along to 2Haul Away, Joe" but resisting the temptation to burst into an impromptu rendering of "Let me through". As the tickets were being booked there were about a dozen left so if you still fancy seeing these guys in action try booking at and you can find out more about them at

We'll let you know how we get on after the event and hopefully return with some more inspiration for signing with beer in hand.
