Gwenno at Lowender Peran festival
We are delighted to announce that two of our Go Cornish team, Will Coleman and Kap’n Pol, are MC’ing for Gwenno Saunders’ performance at Lowender Peran festival.
Known for exploring her Welsh-Cornish heritage through music, Gwenno’s latest album Le Kov was recorded entirely in the Cornish language and is an exploration of the myths and drolls of Cornwall. In a recent interview with Go Cornish, she explains:
Nyns yw hemma albom yn-kever triga yn Kernow po yn-kever prevyans Kernow. Dhymmo vy yth esov vy owth assaya leverel ow gwiryonedh heb bones neppyth nag ov vy. Yn le a henna yma elvennow an yeth kernewek hy honan.
This isn’t an album about living in Cornwall, or about Cornwall as an experience. I am trying to tell my truth without being something that I am not! It is instead based on elements of the Cornish language itself.
Book tickets to see Gwenno perform live at Lowenda Peran on Saturday 2nd November 2019, 7.30pm to 9.30pm.
