A Song for Cornwall

Perhaps the Eurovison contest is for another day but lets not forget the Liet Lavlut , Nòs Ùr and Pan Celtic song contests.

Following the letter below from the Celtic League -A Song for Wales- I'd like to ask; do you think the Cornish could out sing the rest of Europe?

Iona Jones,
Chief Executive of S4C

Dear Iona Jones

Participation of Wales in the Eurovision Song Contest.

I am writing to you following the recent news that Scotland has been given permission to submit its own entry to the Eurovision Song Contest.

The Celtic League is aware that S4C is a member of European Broadcasting Union (EBU), the organisers of the Eurovision Contest, and as such we would like to urge S4C to apply to the EBU, like Scotland, for its own Wales entry in the contest.

Apart from the obvious kudos that would be generated by an entry from Wales in the contest, there is evidence that there is a major economic impact for the countries that take part in the event. Wales already has a strong international reputation for singing and its entry in the Eurovision Song Contest would only reinforce this.

We look forward to hearing from you with your comments.Yours sincerelyRhisiart Tal-e-bot General Secretary
