I received a number of replies to my last posting so I thought that
I'd answer all your questions by sending to the list.
First of all here a couple of addresses for those of you interested in
the Cornish language, Kernewek:
1. Kowethas an Yeth Kernewek (The Cornish Language Fellowship)
Stret Deghow (South Street)
Fordh Ponsmeur (Grampound Road)
2. Kernewek Dre Lyther (Cornish Correspondence Course)
6 Halton Road
Those of you who are interested in traditional Cornish music and dance
might like to get in touch with
Merv & Alison Davey
They are our leading authority on traditional Cornish dance and are able to
supply various books, videos and cassettes, including the recent
Ilow Hengov ha Koth a Gernow
(The Ancient and Traditional Music of Cornwall)
by the group PYBA. This cassettes features Cornish bagpipes, Cornish
Krowd (a sort of three stringed fiddle), organ, flute, bombarde, harp,
kroeder kroghan and vocals in Kernewek.
Another interesting cassette is
Bre an Loja (Lodge Hill)
This is more up-beat, and features some superb contemporary songs written by
Graham Sandercock in Kernewek.
