Christmas Carols and their Prominence in Cornwall and in the Diaspora
Time & Location
Jan 21, 2024, 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM
About the event
Kate Neale was born and raised in Cornwall, in a musical family living on the north coast. Growing up fascinated by the power of music and seeing the importance of tradition for local communities eventually led her to pursue an ethnomusicology PhD, in which she examined how Cornish Christmas carols travelled with emigrant Cornish miners and became part of Cornish and local heritages overseas. She graduated with her doctorate in 2019 and has since become involved in a range of Cornish projects and organizations, including the Federation of Old Cornwall Societies and the Cornish National Music Archive. She is a Cornish speaker and was made a bard of Gorsedh Kernow at St. Just in 2019. In her talk for the CAHS, she will speak about what motivated her interest in Cornwall and its culture, the CNMA project, its activities and aims, and her current research and interests.
