The Fisherman's Friends fifth album was released months after the untimely loss of our dear friend and member Trevor and is a fitting tribute to him.  Featuring songs such as 'Mary Anne' and 'The Last Leviathan', this album shows the diversity and range of the band as they move from barn-storming shanties to laments via the occasional contemporary tune.  Well worth a listen.

'Port Isaac's Fisherman's Friends' was the buoys' 4th album, but the first to be produced after the band had signed a record deal with Universal Island Records.  As such it saw a move away from the original a capella recording style to a more polished, produced feel and featuring instrumentation. It earned the band a Gold Certification for sales and reached Number 9 in the UK Album Charts.  After winning the 2011 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, the album was repackaged with seven new songs from the sea.
