Shout Kernow –
Adventures into the world of Cornish Pub singing
“We rolled from one song to the next and pints were clinked and clunked down with calls for more: it’s always an uproarious occasion.”
During 2012 Hilary Coleman and Sally Burley undertook a journey across the length and breadth of Cornwall, visiting pubs where they knew the tradition of Cornish harmony singing was taking place.
The idea behind this work of love was to take a snapshot of what was being sung and where. Twenty two visits later they have recorded their findings, and the result is a book and CD: Shout Kernow. This book will be published later this year and they are currently running some pre-launch events at a number of venues across Cornwall.
Come and hear the tales of their adventures wonderfully illustrated with some of the songs sung how they belong to be by the Red River Singers. Song words will be available if you would like to join in!
“Wonderful talk and songs. Informative, moving and inclusive.” Penzance Lit Fest 2013
