Mike O’Connor and the Hantergantic Quartet
23rd August 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Cornish Music Comes Alive
Mike O’Connor and the Hantergantic Quartet will give an illustrated talk on Music in Cornwall 1735-1850 at 6 pm on 23 August 2018.
Mike O’Connor is a musician and storyteller who works nationwide. Mike lives in St. Ervan and has made the culture of Cornwall very much his own. He has done extensive research into early Cornish music and was central to the discovery and publication of the manuscripts of John Giddy and John Old. In 2002 he was made a Bard of the Gorsedh of Cornwall for services to Cornish music.
With musical friends he now brings this music to life in a hugely entertaining illustrated talk.
This lively programme takes us from about 1737 to 1850 through the medium of manuscripts found in Cornwall.
