BRENDA – FOR THE LOVE OF CORNWALL

£20.00

An intimate and thorough account of the life and times of Brenda Wootton, Cornwall’s first
lady of song. Described as “probably still the most famous Cornishwoman in the world”,
Brenda became Cornwall’s best-loved cultural
export, taking the love of her country to the Cornish diaspora around the world.

Her fascinating life story is presented by her daughter Sue Ellery-Hill, who watched and
assisted in her mother’s stratospheric rise to international stardom. At times hilarious, at
times harrowing, Brenda’s story also sheds a nostalgic light on Cornish village life, the
arts scene, the folk revival, the resurgence of interest in the Cornish language—and tackles
what it really means to be Cornish
