Grenaways Short Info

The Grenaways could be said to be mining the rich veins of inspirational ore that course through their home turf of Cornwall where they add a sense of their own ties to the region, especially it’s Celtic heritage. But, they are a band set for far wider horizons with a massive and alternative sound billowing through their musical sails… (SIMON HOLLAND - FOLK RADIO UK)

They are rootsy storytellers, unique in the folk style, with songs that are rich in nautical undertones, influenced so much by the sea, its people and coastal living...

In essence The Grenaways are a collective of talented musicians fronted by the songwriters, Kris
Lannen, Laura Garcia and Richard Trethewey. They regularly perform as a 7 piece on festival and

In 2017 they won the ‘Song For Cornwall’ with their song, Ster Kosel, written in the Cornish language of Kernewek and have recently represented Cornwall at Le Festival Interceltique De Lorient and Echos Et Merveilles
in France.
