About the Event

Will Keating & John Dowling, Winter Candlelit Concert Tour 2022, Coming to a Cornish chapel near you!!

Will Keating and John Dowling both love their home county of Cornwall. Their passion for their county shines through in their music, but also in the venues they choose for their Concert Tours. They will be performing to communities in hamlets, villages, and towns across the Duchy. Each church, stunningly beautiful in its own right, steeped with history, with fantastic acoustics for a concert! This is a very meaningful tour to both musicians.

Will Keating and John Dowling have announced they will be embarking on their Winter Candlelit Concert Tour of Cornish Churches 2022!! Launching the tour at the magical creekside St Just-in-Roseland Church, on October the 26th, the tour will cover the length and breadth of Cornwall throughout November 2022!

Award winning Singer song-writer Will Keating, also one of the members of popular Cornish male singing group The Oggymen, has wowed audiences far and wide since embarking on a solo career in 2017.  Two sold out headline performances at the Iconic Minack Theatre in 2020 and 2021, cemented Wills reputation as one of Cornwall’s stand out performers.

“Cornish songs delivered with passion and presence, honesty and integrity” – Harry Glasson

John Dowling is a world class banjo player! At the age of 19 John became a winner of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk awards with a trio called the Black Cat Theory.  At the age of 21, John became the first non-American to win the USA National Bluegrass Banjo Championships held in Kansas.

“John Dowling’s banjo playing reminds us of the breadth of expression this sometimes-maligned instrument is capable of. In his hands the dignity to this instrument is restored.  John is not just a great banjo player but a master musician” Ralph McTell

Together, Will and John blend nostalgic Cornish folk songs with intricate foot tapping instrumentals, leaving audiences both amazed and touched.  This really will be an evening to remember.

Cornish Folk with a splice of Bluegrass!
