About the concert

Song is an integral feature of Cornwall’s maritime culture. Alongside the choral traditions of church and chapel are the Duchy’s sea shanty associations and classic secular songs like ‘Lamorna’ and the ‘Mermaid of Zennor’. In this session we bring together an introduction to the subject by the great Harry Glasson with a number of appropriate songs that evoke the close bond between the sea and Cornish culture.

About Harry

Harry was born at Cowscramp Clowance near Praze an Beeble, Cornwall. At 16, Harry joined the Merchant Navy and started writing poems and Cornish dialect verse whilst at sea. Soon he matched up his songs with a homemade guitar and gigged around Cornwall and the US, building up a large fan group from all over the world. Harry is also renowned as the composer of such contemporary Cornish classics as ‘Cornwall my Home’ and ‘A Song for Cornwall’.
