Thread Name: Origins: Cadgwith Anthem
Subject: RE: History behind the Cadgwith Anthem
Brought up as a Devon Dumpling (next door to Cornwall for the uninitiated) I understood that the Cadgwith Anthem was written by a group of Fishermen in Cadgwith who decided they needed a Folk song of their own and it was written in 1956.....why did a group of Fisherman...who could have written about the sea...about fishing...about smuggling even....write about highway robbery?
Whatever it is a wonderful song with great harmony.
Best wishes, Mike.
