Many of our projects are about getting people involved with making and doing - so this is where we'll be posting up resources so that you can join in!
Kernow Bedroom Choir
Ever fancied learning to sing in harmony? Well here's your chance!
Singing has been a way of bringing communities together for generations. The stories that make up our Cornish culture and identity have been passed down through songs that are popular to this day. In these extraordinary times, to come together and learn songs and sing them together is a big challenge, so we teamed up with Daniel Woodfield to create a short series of tutorials to teach people the melody and harmonies of some of Cornwall’s most cherished folk songs.
During lockdown, we asked people to submit recordings of them singing or playing, and brought all of the recordings together in one joyful track to share virtually while we couldn't meet and sing together in person.
Although these projects have now ended, these resources remain available for you to learn these wonderful songs. We'd love to hear your renditions – feel free to share your recording on Facebook!
You don’t need any experience to have a go – just the willingness to learn!
