I might be producing something next summer, after my mellotron arrives in March.

Something based on the deep mournful note of the old Pendeen Foghorn perhaps, often heard in my ten years living in Trewellard...(Could you hear it from Newbridge Craig?)

It being so foggy out that way, it was as much part of living out there and as evocative as church bells or town clocks in other places, and I think many people missed it when it changed.

It was a part of the great experience of wandering old tinners tracks with the dogs in the cool sea fog!

We live in interesting times!

SUE ASTON

I think Sue Aston's music is breathtaking ! We featured her music and an interview with Sue on this morning's 'One & All' an the requests started flooding in as we were broadcasting. Sue and her husband Phil are a lovely couple and live down West. Sue is a classical musician (violin and piano) and I have very one of her albums. Her music is greatly influenced by Celtic Cornwall and is extraordinary. A beautiful lady and beautiful music.

Sue's website:

Some of Sue's You Tube films (actually available on a DVD):

As I wrote to the BBC yesterday, we have so much talent here in our Country, we really needn't bother importing any from England - world beating musicians, authors, playrights, academics, artists, sculptors - enough to fill the BBC many times over. It is good to be in Kernow !

HANTERHIR

Different type of music, rock this time and Hanterhir ! I have seen them live many times. Last time was in Redruth and the place was packed as they sang their songs of revolution in Cornish. A great bunch of guys ! I love the way they slag off the Westminster Politicians and many local ones too when they are live and the audience love them :

Yes, Graham, we could hear the old Pendeen foghorn from Newbridge. I couldn't believe it when they replaced it with the insipid, effeminate squeal they have now (we can't hear that one). The old one had real character and a wonderful deep sound. If riding the moors in fog, and the old horn was going, it would be followed by a series of fading echoes, and sounded like there was nothing out there but a void. It was eerie and a bit awe-inspring, too. The new one is bloody awful.

If I remember rightly, King Crimson did get a very similar sound on the mellotron to the old Pendeen foghorn, on the sinister instrumental track: "The Devil's Triangle". They also got that ice-cold quality to the 3 violins sound that only the 'tron could achieve. That sound raises the hackles on the back of your neck!

What about Gwenno Saunders? She's a fluent Cornish speaker, and has done a few pieces in Cornish.
(Or has she been mentioned already? I may have missed her while flicking through the thread.)

And of course there's all her fantastic work in the Pipettes!

That's a lovely song by Gwenno. Another in Cornish: "Temptasyon" is sung by the Mediaeval Baebes. Much better mellotron tracks by Mike Dickson (a Scot) are "Stroke No.2" (stunning strings/human choir sounds) and Ludwig Van's "Moonlight Sonata" (I never did like Philip Glass's music, like "Metamorphosis"). My Mellotron 4000-D is due to arrive in mid March. One of the things I'm thinking of doing with it is to compose and play tracks to which I can add poetry in Cornish. (I doubt I'll be doing much singing - my voice resembles two corncrakes having an argument - not that this did Rod Stewart any harm, of course, although it's deep enough to try some Mike Pinder songs). Nice to see my good friend of many years, and fellow Save Penwith Moors campaigner Ian Cooke down the Boleigh fogou with Julian Cope.
