About us

A living room in North East London isn’t the first place you would think to find traditional Cornish Music being played, yet that is where London Gwerin was born. It came about from a simple need of two Cornish friends living in London to reminisce and celebrate their own culture. Daniel Woodfield and Jon Bennallick draw on their experience in playing music ranging from Jazz to Arabic Classical, Drum and Bass to Balkan to bring you London Gwerin, a band that looks through a contemporary lens whilst paying homage to the music and dance traditions of the Celtic nations.
