Celtic Lounge - Cornish Cultural Hub Tewynblustri
The Celtic Lounge also known as the Urban Kelt Coffee Shop is based in the Kowethas Ertach Kernow (Association for Cornish Heritage) gallery rooms at Newquay Museum. Here besides providing great coffee in a unique setting numerous events are hosted.
Music, spoken word, reading clubs and all manor of events including illustrated heritage talks provided by knowledgeable Cornish researchers, archaeologists, historians and those practicing a variety of Cornish culture.
The Celtic Lounge is pleased to be hosting Vedina Rose, who although not at all Celtic in her music allows the Cornish Cultural Hub – Tewynblustri to share music of a different genre. Cornish folk have travelled the world sharing our Celtic themed culture so, it is only right that occasionally we share other cultures here in Cornwall.
Vedina Rose is a London based Trip Hop Soul singer With a Bohemian Bantu Twist. Drawing on her rich multicultural heritage and unorthodox musicianship she creates Art that is passionate, original and drenched in meaning. Her expressive vocal stylings have earned her comparisons to Bjork, Kate Bush and Sade.
