As far as I know the singing (not really harmony singing, it's true) came from the fact they had a large family in one house who all sang together, the fact that they were orphans cementing them with the older generation, their Irish tinker grandmother. They didn't ever really meet anyone else that did this, but the preponderence of fishermens choirs on the coasts could point to an older group singing tradition...?
