Kernow In The City - St Piran's Celebration London Gig + Party - Saturday March 10th 2012
"London’s Annual Celebration of Cornish Music and Art for St. Piran’s Day (Cornwall’s National Day) - returns for its third year with a fantastic line-up of Cornish talent including the acclaimed singer-songwriter Ruarri Joseph and stand-up poet Murray Lachlan Young. Following the success of the previous two events at the ICA, Kernow In The City returns for its third year at a new home - Rich Mix - with a fantastic line-up of some of Kernow (Cornwall’s) most exciting talent!
This year’s headliner, indie-folk troubadour Ruarri Joseph is often likened to Tom Waits, Cat Stevens and even, by the NME, to Dylan. Former Rialto lead singer Louis Eliot and his band The Embers bring their joyous rural sound and rip-roaring songs to the big smoke.
One of the UK’s best-known exponents of spoken word and stand-up poetry, Murray Lachlan Young currently sits as BBC 6Music’s Poet In Residence and is a regular contributor to Radio 4’s Saturday Live.
Featuring ex-members of Slowdive, The Loose Salute are the point where dream pop and surf rock meet, bringing the west coast sound to Cornwall’s north coast. Folk-punk party starters Crowns kick the night off with their rousing singalong anthems.
Plus contributions from Cornish visual artists and daytime activities being lined up include a Cornish film showcase and the opportunity to learn to speak Kernowek at a Cornish language workshop. Proper Cornish pasties and some of the region’s finest ale will be on sale at the event to make sure everyone gets a flavour of Kernow at its best.
Come one and all to London’s Cornish cultural event - Kernow In The City at Rich Mix! "
