…it’s a good time to look back over the good times! Here are some of our highlights:
Playing for the rather marvellous Golden Tree Productions in the lead up to some of their Gogmagog shows: their opening night at the Charles Causley Festival in Launceston, a scorching Friday at Perranporth, a lovely audience at St Mabyn who helped us to name one of Emma’s tunes from the Angry Fives set (listen out for Dozmary Five), and a wind-blown set by the cathedral in Truro captured in this video by Len Davies over on our Facebook page.
Expanding our set to include some songs for singing along, perfect for the Cornish Evening arranged by Bewnans Kernow at Liskeard and for the summer garden party at Abbeyfields in St Austell – and joining in ourselves at the session after Hilary Coleman and Sally Burley’s brilliant Shout Kernow workshop at Wadebridge Folk Festival.
A break in the clouds meant we could break out some more songs & tunes at this year’s Newlyn Fish Festival, for the opening of a community wind turbine at BF Adventure, for a beautiful wedding near Upton Cross and at Launceston Food Festival (while we were there we sneaked up Lanson Castle to play a few tunes there too!). We learnt some more Cornish while playing with MAGA for #speakcornish week in July – hollan mouy! (More salt, anyone?)
And last, but definitely not least – we’ve been recording! Thanks to Brendan at cornishunderground we’ve been able to get some of our music online. Hear some of our tracks on the Listen page.
It’s been a wonderful summer. But the fun isn’t over yet – look out for us next at Lowender Peran on Saturday 18th October at lunchtime in the Sunset Bar! We can’t wait!
