A mini-festival bringing the sounds of Cornwall to the big city will return to London's Shoreditch for its tenth year.

Kernow in the City will be the perfect event to celebrate St Piran's Day for Cornish 'expats' and afficionados.

Headlining this year are acclaimed garage rockers The Velvet Hands, renowned for blending slacker story-telling with belting guitar riffs reminiscent of The Strokes.

The Kernow King will also bring his take on everyday Cornish life to the London crowd once again.

Daisy Clark, who burst onto the scene a few years ago with her unique cover of Hopelessly Devoted to You, will open the mini-festival.

Musical support also comes in the form of Davey and Dyer, who can kick up a stormed armed only with bouzouki, fiddle and viola.

Poetry has long been a feature of the event, and Taran Spalding-Jenkins will be performing some of his work, which deals with his relationship with Cornwall and childhood there.

The night will be fuelled by ales from Skinner's Brewery and Cornish pasties from Warrens Bakery, and will include a rousing collective shout of Trelawny and all the favourite Cornish pub songs, led by the Wrecker's Wednesday team.

Rich Mix in Shoreditch will host the evening on Saturday March 2. Advance tickets cost £12 and can be ordered from richmix.org.uk.
