Song for Cornwall entries are sought
Kan rag Kernow – the annual competition to choose a song to represent Cornwall at the Pan Celtic Festival in Ireland – is now under way, with the Cornish Language Partnership offering help writing lyrics in Kernewek.
The 2014 event, which will take place in Derry next April, will welcome contestants from Scotland, Ireland, Brittany, Wales, Isle of Man and Cornwall, which has met with success several times in recent years.
International Pan Celtic president Dave Crewes, from Perranporth, said: "What better way to get your song heard on an international stage? This is a must for all aspiring young musicians in Cornwall."
Entries to the Kan rag Kernow competition should be composed especially for the competition and are welcomed in any genre of music. Shortlisted entries will compete at a live concert in Cornwall. The deadline for entries is January 10. Anyone interested in entering should contact the MAGA office on 01872 323497 or firstname.lastname@example.org
