Cornrigs, The

25 April 2008

The CornrigsThe Cornrigs are (or possibly were ….) Hannah Harris on vocals and Ian Granton on acoustic guitar. They are based in London.

Hannah and Ian met several years before they came to the Goose, when they were both in a band called “Telophase”.

They formed the Cornrigs in 2006, taking their name from a song in the movie “The Wicker Man”, and have been been writing original music since 2007.

Their influences are wide ranging and include Nick Drake, John Martyn, Robert Johnson, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, Joni Mitchell, Ravel, Vaughan Williams, Miles Davis and – er – Doris Day. And many more!

They say “We are very interested in the tone of the guitar and voice and have tried to write uncluttered music that emphasises the melody and allows the songs to breathe”

Back in the day, The Cornrigs released an album, A Kinder Fayre.  As of 2014, we are not sure whether they still exist 🙁
