Popular Cornish folk singer/musician Will Keating and world renowned Banjo player John Dowling are joining forces in February 2022 playing at Cornwall's historic churches as part of their Candlelit Concerts tour.

Award winning song-writer Will Keating has been honing his live performance skills entertaining crowds in Cornwall, the south west, London, north Wales, and beyond, spreading old Cornish songs to new audiences and telling stories of Cornwall’s rich history & heritage.

During the pandemic, Will streamed live, weekly, from his home in Falmouth, to a global audience, receiving a letter of thanks from the Lord Lieutenant on behalf of HM the Queen for the community support.

John Dowling’s Banjo playing has won him high accolades from across the globe. He is a previous winner, and twice finalist, of the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Young Folk awards.

He also became the first non-American to win the USA National Bluegrass Banjo Championships held in Kansas at the tender age of 21.

John also featured alongside Jools Holland and Courtenay Pine on TV ‘s ‘Play it again’ teaching the banjo to stand-up comedian Frank Skinner.
