The Liverpool Fishermen was a 1970s Liverpool folk singing group consisting of Brian Jacques, his brothers Tony Jacques (older) and Jimmy Jacques (younger), and other Liverpudlians Bobby Dyson, Alan Fitzgerald, and Bernard Davis. Stan Francis also played in the band for a stint.
The Jacques brothers were the vocalists of the group; Dyson played guitar and banjo; Fitzgerald played 12 and 6 string guitars, and Davis also played banjo.
Their musical repertoire included "traditional and contemporary, Irish and Liverpool songs, monologues, etc."
All members of the group were born and raised in Liverpool, and described themselves as having a strong penchant for beer - often times Guinness. Their advertising stated that they performed "wakes, weddings, Irish fights, folk clubs, [and] French TV."
