Fisherman's Friends

Hardeep Singh Kholi continues his gastronomic story telling journey across the UK. This week he visits the picturesque fishing village of Port Isaac on the north Cornish coast. There he finds nine men known as the Fishermen's Friends, whose regular performances on the harbour side caught the attention of a major record label in 2010, catapulting them to unexpected fame and commercial success. But at the start of 2013 a terrible tragedy changed their worlds forever and the voices of the Fishermen's Friends fell silent. With Christmas approaching Hardeep gathers the men together for an evening of freshly caught and cooked seafood which he offers up in return for the their story and, he hopes, a song.
