A Song For Us

We are very excited to have teamed up with Hall For Cornwall and intoBodmin to present Cornwall’s contribution to a music collaboration from Bristol based producers Sound UK. A national music project, A Song For Us celebrates the power of music in bringing communities together. 


Cornwall’s Song for Us will feature acclaimed South West musician Gwenno who has created a unique song inspired by the people of Cornwall and performed by a collective of local ensembles, musicians and orchestras.

Gwenno wanted to capture the hope and pain that people have felt, along with the gratitude for the incredible work that NHS staff, carers, teachers, key workers and volunteers are doing. The song is written in Kernewek (Cornish) to document this time, as many more people are learning it across Cornwall. It’s a language that sounds wonderful when sung as a group too.

The composition will be streamed online from 23 March 2021, alongside other new songs by Gavin Bryars (East Riding), Skinny Pelembe (South Yorkshire), Seth Lakeman (Devon) and This Is The Kit & Bucky (Bristol).

Watch and listen to A Song for Cornwall: Meur Ras Dhia Gernow (Thank You From Cornwall) by Gwenno from 23rd March 2021

A Song for Us celebrates creativity in everyone; whether performing, composing, or listening. It will capture the union and solidarity that was apparent during the clap for the NHS, the extraordinary response to the NHS volunteer army, the small acts of kindness.
