Thread Name: Origins: Cadgwith Anthem
Subject: RE: History behind the Cadgwith Anthem
The original song only has 2 verses. Most of the others were written in the Stable Bar of the Ring of Bells at St Issey may day 1979. The challemnge was you could not go to bed until you had written another verse. Many of the verses stil sung come from the pens of John Purdy, Jon Heslop and Dick Goddard.
