“The battle to establish a Cornish representative at the international 2015 Pan Celtic Festival was won by Looe-based folk band The Changing Room this week.
The Pan Celtic Festival was first held in 1971 and aims to promote the modern Celtic languages, cultures and artists from all six Celtic nations: Brittany, Cornwall, Wales, Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man. Cornwall’s entry in the festival’s song contest was decided by Kan rag Kernow judges at a live gig at the Penventon Park Hotel, Redruth on 30th January. The winning song was written by band members Tanya Brittain and Sam Kelly, and performed in Cornish.”
