A Bit of Your Time

by Jim Wearne

These songs express my love for Cornwall. They speak of my desire to speak out on Cornwall's behalf and to defend, befriend, celebrate, praise, honor, protect, promote, and cherish this wonderful land and people. If you know Cornwall or don't, listen.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
If you know me and you know about Cornwall, you have already guessed what might be on this CD. Some politics, some Cornish Nationalism, some Comedy, some Folkieness. There's even some Rock and Roll. If you aren’t familiar with Cornwall, have a listen. My people came from there, and I have developed an abiding love of the place and its people. Therefore I feel a need to speak out for Cornwall, sometimes in a way that makes people uncomfortable. Cornwall has an ancient and beautiful Celtic culture, a language all its own, a history that goes back to pre-Roman times and a spirit that lives in the land. The Cornish people are warm, funny, wise, generous and smart. All of those things that I just said are just what some people (I won’t mention who, but they have a Queen who loves little tailless dogs) don’t want you to know. Fool them. Listen to my songs.
Most of the songs here are from or about Cornwall except the last. I put A Song In the Wind on a previous CD, but this is a new recording, with Craig Weatherhill on Mellotron. I mostly did it again so as to have Craig and his Marvelous Machine on the cut. The results bear me out. There’s some political stuff here, and some of it will definitely “Out” me as a Cornish Nationalist. As if anyone was in doubt. English folks—nothing personal.
I had a lot of fine help from Robert Rose of Peregrine Recording and other fine musicians, including the great Dave Sugarbeet on fiddle. One of the songs I co-wrote with Mike Chappell, who fearlessly speaks out for Cornwall sometimes to the discomfort of other, more moderate Cornish patriots.
I hope you enjoy this CD. I had a great time making it.
