Brenda - For the Love of Cornwall : The Life and Times of Brenda Wootton - Cornwall's First Lady of Song Paperback / softback
An intimate and thorough account of the life and times of Brenda Wootton, Cornwall's first lady of song.
From the late 1960s for over 20 years, Brenda became Cornwall's best-loved cultural export, taking her love of her country to the Cornish diaspora around the world. Her story explores village life in Cornwall pre- and post-WWII, the arts scene and `amdram' in mid-century Penwith, the folk revival of the `60s, the resurgence of interest in the Cornish language - and what it means to be Cornish. At times hilarious, at times harrowing, her fascinating life story is courageously presented by her daughter Sue Ellery-Hill, who watched and assisted in her mother's stratospheric rise to stardom with incredulity.
