Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Brenda Wootton (n e Ellery) (1928 - 1994) was a Cornish poetess and folk singer and was seen as an ambassador for Cornish tradition and culture in all the Celtic nations and as far away as Australia and Canada. She began her musical career as a young schoolgirl, singing in village halls throughout the remote communities of west Cornwall. Wootton became active on the folk scene in the early 60s and almost single-handedly kept the Cornish folk song tradition alive for many years. Her early albums were recorded on Cornwall's Sentinel label, often with her singing partners John the Fish (also known as John Langford ), Robert Bartlett and later with guitarists Pete Berryman, Mike Silver, Al Fenn, David Penhale and Chris Newman.show more
