Hugely popular Cornish sea shanty singers Port Isaac’s Fisherman’s Friends are to make a special appearance at the 12th annual St Austell Brewery Celtic Beer Festival taking place this weekend (Saturday November 27).
The 10-man a cappella group have taken the world by storm with their pub songs and Friday-night sing-a-longs on the harbour quay in Port Isaac.
Their appearance at the Celtic Beer Festival will add further to the distinctly Cornish atmosphere at what has become established one of the biggest and best parties of the year in Cornwall.
As always, real ale fans are in for a treat with award-winning head brewer Roger Ryman and his team brewing up a fantastic selection of seasonal and specially-brewed ales for the festival. Together with the Brewery’s range of award winning ales there will be more than 100 great beers from across the UK and Europe’s Celtic regions.
Port Isaac’s Fisherman’s Friends are among a line-up of eight live bands which will take to the festival stage from midday to 11pm in the atmospheric surroundings of the old wine cellars and vaults beneath the Victorian brewery and its historic rum store.
Other live music on the day will come from 3 Daft Monkeys, Martin Skewes, Mr Postman, Mosquitoes, 3 Minute Warning, Mark and the Acrobats, Grey Dog, Gallow Glass and Lenny’s Sing-a-long.
Last year the festival attracted a record 3,000 beer and music lovers, and raised an amazing £12,000 for the St Austell Brewery Charitable Trust, which donates thousands of pounds to deserving causes across Devon and Cornwall each year.
Roger Ryman said: “We’re all looking forward to the festival and making final preparations for what promises to be a great party. There’s always a fantastic atmosphere at the event and the appearance of Port Isaac’s Fisherman’s Friends should make for an amazing and very traditional sing-a-long. We’re delighted that they are able to join us for the festival.”
Food will be provided by a team of Brewery chefs – all using fresh Cornish produce.
