News on Trelawny words!

Singing Trelawny on St Pirans Day!

We’ll be in London on the 5th March at
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!

Autumn News

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!
