STOP PRESS - Updated 14th November 2021
Here is the latest news on Cornwall's folk scene. We will publish here items received since the last issue of the magazine came out.
FOLK IN CORNWALL AUTUMN 2021 ISSUE
The autumn issue is now out. Posted to clubs and subscribers on 15th October.
NEW SESSION IN CALLINGTON
A new acoustic session has started at the Cornish Ancestor pub in Callington. It will run on the first Monday of each month. NEXT SESSION IS MONDAY 6TH DECEMBER FROM 7.30pm
LUXULYAN SESSION TO RESTART
The Cornish session in Luxulyan will resume on Sunday 7th November. Organiser Chris Bartram says While we are planning to concentrate, as before, on playing (and singing!) Cornish songs and tunes, and in particular the large repertoire in both the written and recorded archives of traditional music and people's heads, we are not going to look askance at people who wish to play or sing newer songs and music. Far from it! Cornish music is a living tradition with many excellent tunes and songs being written from Scilly to the Marsland and beyond in many different idioms. We'll also warmly welcome people who carry other traditions.
NEW SESSION IN PENZANCE
The Raffidy Dumitz Band - Cornish folk for Cornish Culure Events has has started a new session at the Union Hotel in Penzance on Mondays from 5pm to 6.30pm
NEW SESSION IN RESCORLA NEAR ST AUSTELL
We are holding the second session of what will hopefully be a regular feature on the traditional roots music scene on Monday 15th November. The session is open to musicians and non musicians alike. The aim is for a bit of a jam session where everyone can join in as much as possible. Songs with a chorus are particularly welcome. The cost by agreement at the last session is £1.50 which includes a cup of tea or coffee and a biscuit.
