Fisherman's Friends Turn Down US Tour
2:32pm 13th August 2013
The Fisherman's Friends have turned down the chance to tour America because they're too busy with their day jobs.
The Port Isaac sea shanty group think trying to crack the States like One Direction, would be too risky.
As well as a recording contract they also work as farmers, builders and pasty sellers.
Singer John Brown tells Pirate FM they are just grateful for what they have already got.
John said: "People have taken us to their hears, they like the whole story. The people in Cornwall love it, it's popularised that type of shanty and things like that. It's been great, it's been a lovely journey."
John still can not believe the international interest. He said: "A lot of people know us from a lot of places. Not only England but in Australia people know us, North America. It's been worldwide, that's one of the things that has caught us all by surprise, how far it's gone."
