The Cadgwith Singers started many years ago in the Pub at Cadgwith with Buller and Hartley. The singing has changed over the years and many of the original singers are now gone, sadly missed, and their voices too. Their parts have been passed on to others who keep the traditional songs going. The songs are also changing a little. What has not changed is the Friday night gathering to sing -well-anything and everything really but always in the same unrehearsed and unique style. Long may this tradition continue.
These days the Cadgwith Singers are to be found singing in clubs, pubs, theatres and rugby matches all over Cornwall, wherever there is a convivial atmosphere and an audience that enjoys the unique, full blooded style of singing that never fails to please. Further afield there have been tours to various S.W. Counties, London, Ireland, France, and the Czech Republic.
All this from a group of people who just get together for the pure enjoyment of singing, and as their leader David Muirhead has said “You must remember we’re not a choir, we’re just a group of friends who just get together to sing the songs we love to sing”
