Seminar with a difference

Jan Lokan has sent this information: Next year’s Cornish History Seminar, to be held on Thursday 18 May, promises to be a lively occasion. Rather than focus on a more usual theme such as mining, public life, heroism, migration, and so on, the seminar next year will illustrate the role of music in Cornish life and, in turn, the contributions Cornish people have made to the world of music. Under the title of ‘Another side of Cornish life – MUSIC!!’, speakers from four Australian states (Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia) and from Cornwall will talk on Cornish carols, folk music, pub music, music for dancing, choral music, band music, music in chapel services — the list goes on.

It will be a ‘seminar with a difference’, as those who attend will not just listen to words about Cornish history, they will also listen to illustrative examples of music and may even have the chance to join in. So please put the date in your diaries and we’ll welcome you to join us and Cornwall’s new Grand Bard, music specialist Merv Davey, at the seminar on SA’s Copper Coast next year.
