Special concert commission by the Lowender Peran Festival 2013 celebrating the remarkable career of Cornish singer Brenda Wootton at Ponsmere Hotel, Perranporth. Tickets £5/£2.50.
2013 marks what would have been the 85th birthday of renowned Cornish singer and poet Brenda Wootton. To celebrate Brenda’s remarkable career as the ‘Voice of Cornwall’ Lowender Peran has commissioned an anniversary concert with funding from Feast and support from Cornwall Music Forum.
Building on the success of the Cornwall Music Fourm showcase concert last year, Lowender Peran has commissioned four local singer songwriters to give their own arrangement to one of the songs made famous by Brenda Wootton, as well as performing some of their own compositions. Our four confirmed acts are Andrew Bate, Emily Howard, Kezia and Ryan Jones.
The concert finale will be a collaboration between Camborne Town Band and Richard Trethewey. Richard is a folk singer from Redruth who completed the Folk degree at Newcastle University in 2012. He has championed a number of Wootton's pieces, and this will give an opportunity for him to perform a number of songs, including his own compositions, with a full brass lineup.
Date: 20 October 2013, 2pm - 5pm.
