Fishwives Choir gets a shout out Down Under!

Elisabeth Jackson on Australia's ABC Radio station gives the girls a shout out!

Seems word has reached the other side of the planet that the Fishwives Choir might just storm this year's coveted number one spot in the charts at Christmas as artists vie to see off the totally-fab ricated X Factor francheese. With all the proceeds of the record going to support the work of the Royal National Mission to Deep Sea Fishermen the success of the record will have double appeal for those that purchase and download a copy.  Sadly, even now officers at the Mission in Newlyn are on call to provide support as the UK's most dangerous occupation claimed another casualty last week with the loss of a fisherman off Cadgwith on the Lizard.

Many of the wives in the choir have lost loved ones - and all have been directly associated with fishing lives lost at sea.

Take note, in order to contribute to the Christmas Chart sales, downloading copies of the song should not take place before December the 15th.
