Going up Camborne Hill – or Way down to Lamorna?  Take a journey into the rich traditions of Cornish pub singing at a free short course beginning on the 16th April in Madron.

The course is part of the Penwith Points of View heritage project and will be led Hilary Coleman and Sally Burley who have introduced Cornish songs to many singers.
Project co-ordinator Jane Howells “These five sessions will cover some of Cornwall’s best-known songs and the history and stories behind them.  Cornwall’s singing tradition is a distinctive and much-loved part of Cornish culture.  We are looking forward to some very enjoyable evenings and all are welcome.”
The course will also draw on a new book called ‘Shout Kernow’ by Hilary and Sally.  Hilary, who runs the Red River Singers says,
“The sessions will explore the treasures to be found in the book’s pages and some of the tales of our adventures into the world of Cornish pub singing.  Song words will be available and no music reading skills are necessary.”
The Traditional Cornish Singing course is free and begins at 7.15pm on Thursday 16th April in the Billiard Room, Landithy Hall, Madron. To reserve a place on the course contact admin@bewnanskernow.org
The Penwith Points of View project is a two-year heritage and culture programme taking place in the Madron area. The project is run by Bewnans Kernow, the partnership of Cornish cultural organisations.

Shout Kernow
Celebrating Cornwall’s pub songs

With two CDs containing 31 songs recorded live in pubs across Cornwall

Hilary Coleman and Sally Burley
ISBN 978 1903427 97 2
Paperback 164 pages
104 black and white illustrations
Notation for 30 songs

Shout Kernow is the result of a project begun in 2012 by Hilary Coleman and Sally Burley to record, celebrate and help sustain the living tradition of pub singing in Cornwall. Travelling around Cornwall, recording variations of songs in twenty-two locations and meeting numerous singers from Calstock to Cadgwith they have assembled a lively collection of words, tunes and harmonies, as well as the background to the songs and singers and information about the pubs and events where the singing takes place.

“Hilary Coleman – a bard of the Cornish Gorseth for her services to Cornish music (her bardic name ‘Atamiores’ means ‘pioneer’) and founder member of ground-breaking groups Gwaryoryon, Sowena and Dalla, the list of her musical achievements is impressively long. Assisted by singing enthusiast and Cornish culture-lover, Sally Burley, their initial findings suggest that the living tradition of having a bit of a ‘toot’, a ‘tuney’, an ‘after glow’ or a ‘shout’ down your local, is alive and well.”
– Cornwall Today Magazine

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!
