Thanks to Mike Brown!
We’ll be in London on the 5th March at http://sunand13cantons.co.uk
but there’s plenty of pubs around Cornwall where you can go for a sing (see link below). And at 9pm there’ll be the sound of Trelawny ringing across the land!
My Blog went a bit quiet in September but that’s not because we did! It’s because we visited over 9 events and so it’ll take a bit of catching up! This included our usual shouts at The Countryman in Piece and the Seiners at Perranporth but more of them later. I also set up a new singing group – The Red River Singers at Heartlands with the main aim of teaching Cornish songs – not just from the pub tradition but some of the folk and Cornish language ones too. Yet I have heard a wealth of lesser known songs on my travels – particularly some of the old hymn tunes and hope to include them too. We’ve had a great start with over 20 people coming regularly and tonight will be their first outing for a shout at The Star in Vogue!
Have a listen to me chatting to Donna Birrell, about the Shout Kernow project. The interview starts 2 hours and 20 minutes in and features a lovely rendition of The Old Grey Duck – thanks to Chris Easton and the singers up the Countryman!
