A Song for Us celebrates our communities and the power of music to bring us together. As part of a national music project, Gavin Bryars, Skinny Pelembe, Seth Lakeman, This is the Kit & Bucky and Gwenno are creating new songs inspired by the people of East Riding, South Yorkshire, Devon, Bristol and Cornwall.
A Song for Us - Cornwall has been written by Gwenno and will be performed by the Kernow Bedroom Choir, in association with Carn to Cove, Hall for Cornwall and Sound UK. It will be streamed online from 23 March 2021 at asongforus.org.

Singing songs have 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 have 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. We have been asking people to submit recordings of them singing or playing. If the deadline has passed, don't worry - when this comes to an end and we’re allowed to socialise, we’ll meet up and sing the songs that we’ve learnt together, so please take some time to learn them and feel free to share your recording on Facebook.
You don’t need to have any experience to take part, just the willingness to learn.
