Pendeen enjoy being on the edge

Members of Pendeen Silver Band have been helping to play their part in an innovative art collaboration.

 

Members from Pendeen Silver Band recently recorded a series of Cornish hymns as part of a collaborative Art Project entitled, ‘Edges & Extremes’.

Focused on the local area its people and the industry, a number of monologues and poems were recorded at the BBC Radio Cornwall studios along with the contribution of Cornish hymns played by some members of the band.

It’s been a fantastic opportunity to work with Evlynn on this project and to be able to bring to life the feeling of west Penwith through a combination of music, art and poetryChris Hatch
