Love singing? Love Cornwall? If so, you’ll love the The Big Cornish Sing in Looe, Cornwall this September (part of the Looe Music Festival programme of events).
What’s it all about? It’s a mass participation event where we’re aiming to have thousands of people singing one song together in Cornish. The song is called ‘Roev Sos Roev’ (Row Boys Row) and you can listen to it here. We supply free lyric sheets (including a phonetic version), sheet music and a backing track to rehearse to.
When? | P’eur? 4.30pm, Saturday 30th September 2017
Where? | Ple? Main Stage Arena, Looe Beach, East Looe, Cornwall PL13 1BU
Why? | Prag? To help raise awareness of the Cornish language, and to encourage more people to sing (in Cornish).
Who? | Piw? We’ll have a host of guests on stage, but the performers will be people like you. Even if you’ve never spoken a word of Cornish before and the only place you usually sing is in the shower, please get involved – we need you!
