The Fisherman’s Friends have been widely credited with starting the revival of interest in shanty-style choral singing but a cornerstone of their success has been their constantly evolving and expanding repertoire.

Penzance Youth String Orchestra play Vivaldi with 13 year old prize winning violinist

Friday, 20th July 2018

Something really special is happening at St Julitta's. The amazing 13 year old violinist Bilegtugs Lut is coming to Lanteglos. He is already an international prize winner for his advanced musical ability with the violin and he will be playing with other talented young musicians. The main part of the programme is Vivaldi's Four Seasons where Bilegtugs will be the soloist. Although Biletugs was born in the UK, his parents are from Mongolia - hence his unusual name, often shortened to 'Bill'.
The programme will include other pieces inspired by the theme of time of day or seasons.
Admission is free but donations are appreciated. Light refreshments are available.
The beautiful medieval church of St Julitta has wonderful acoustics so be prepared for a memorable experience.

Wizz Jones

Friday, 3rd August 2018

Wizz began his musical career at the age of 18 leading a Country and Skiffle band called “The Wranglers” in his hometown of Croydon, Surrey in 1957. He had been inspired to take up the acoustic guitar a year or so before this after hearing such guitar luminaries as Big Bill Broonzy, Rambling Jack Elliot and Muddy Waters playing at a club in London organized by Cyril Davies and Alexis Korner (The Roundhouse in Wardour Street). Having learned most of his blues licks from Long John Baldry and Davy Graham while playing in the coffee bars of Soho, Wizz followed the time honoured trail – busking throughout Europe with many different musicians including at one time a budding young blues-man named Rod Stewart.
