AllMusic Review by

Based in a small fishing village on the Celtic Sea in North Cornwall, traditional English folk group Port Isaac's Fisherman's Friends’ eponymous debut album is built on a foundation of maritime history and its rich oral traditions. Specializing in forebitters, shanties, and traditional Cornish folk songs, the ten-man group claims no bandleader -- rather, the spirited army of fishermen, lifeboatmen, coast guards, builders, artisans, hoteliers, and shopkeepers trade off leads, while the remaining vocalists harmonize.
