Kernow in the City returns with London’s annual mini-festival of Cornish contemporary pop, folk and rock music, comedy and poetry in celebration of St Piran, Cornwall’s patron saint.
Headlining this year are acclaimed garage rockers The Velvet Hands, who were born out of the NME-coined ‘Kernow Wave’ rock scene. Firing on all youthful cylinders with effortlessly cool style, The Velvet Hands have art in their heart and fire in their bellies.
In support we are delighted to welcome back Cornish royalty, the Kernow King, bringing his comedic take on everyday Cornish life to London once again.
Musical support also comes in the form of Davey & Dyer, leading components of traditional Celtic music, and Daisy Clark, who burst onto the scene a few years ago as her unique acoustic style went viral.
Finally, poetry has long been a feature of this event and we are sure you will love the exceptional talent that is Taran Spalding-Jenkin.
The night will be fuelled with ales from Skinner’s Brewery and Cornish pasties from Warrens Bakery with a ‘shout’ thrown in for free! So, if you’re in London and you love Cornwall, come one and all to celebrate our national day!
