The Drecklys

Tuesday Jul 27, 2021 - Monday Aug 30, 2021 Town Hall, Wadebridge

Sun 29th: Near Barclays Bank, Molesworth St 1pm

The Drecklys are small group of mainly ‘Cornish Maids’ from around St Austell Bay, a spin off from Champagne Cornwall Chorus, who have come together through a mutual love of music and song.

They sing their own arrangements of Cornish songs and shanties and like to revive old folk songs. There’s some blues and barbershop thrown in, all in a unique Acapella harmony style. They love songs of the sea and of Cornwall.

They’ve played the Falmouth Shanty Festival and this year are taking part in the Weston Super Mare and Teignmouth Shanty Festivals.

At the 2016 Tywardreath Shanty Festival they closed with their own arrangement of Harry Glasson’s famous ‘Cornwall my Home’. Harry was in the audience and commented “Everywhere I go I love to hear that song…, but your rendition was ‘astounding’.

Such praise had them shaking with nerves and walking on air!
