Wednesday 4th September 2019 – Fisherman’s Friends
Starring James Purefoy, Daniel Mays, David Hayman, Dave Johns and Tuppence Middleton
“The UK's number 1 Buoy Band”
Our new season opens with Fisherman’s Friends, the uplifting true story of the part-time Cornish sea shanty group that hit the big time. It is another powerful British feel good hit in the same category as Finding Your Feet. It’s inspired by the true story of the Fisherman’s Friends, an all-male a Capella folk singing group from Port Isaac in Cornwall who in the noughties became an unexpected hit for their authentic sea shanties.
Danny (Mays) is a music executive who travels to Cornwall on a stag weekend with a bunch of his shallow London music PR mates – joining in with their inanities just to soothe his secret loneliness – and he’s pranked by them into offering to sign the local sea shanty singers, led by Jim (James Purefoy), Jago (David Hayman) and Leadville (Dave Johns). But of course something in the music speaks to Danny’s romantic soul; he starts to fall in love with Jim’s single-mum daughter Alwyn (Middleton) and he makes it his mission to bring the Fisherman’s Friends and their music to the world.
