RESIDENTS, relatives and staff at Kernow House care home in Launceston enjoyed an afternoon of great live music when Will Keating and Harry Glasson came to perform. 

Ian, who lives at Kernow House, went to school with Harry and has known him for years. In later life they wrote three songs together. Ian wrote the music and Harry wrote the words.

Residents joined in with the singing, and had a fantastic time listening to both Will and Harry play guitar and sing Cornish Songs. 

Will is well known for singing ‘This Is My Cornwall’, which Harry wrote.

General manager, Leigh Stanley said: “Our residents and guests had a wonderful afternoon with the fantastic performers. We do our best to provide a wide range of activities and entertainment at Kernow House as part of the lifestyle enrichment programme for residents, and this was one of our favourites.”

At the end of the performance residents were asked if they would like to have Will and Harry back and a huge roar of ‘yes’ erupted. One resident even tried to make a return booking there and then.

Kernow House care home is run by Barchester Healthcare, one of the UK’s largest care providers, which is committed to delivering personalised care across its care homes and hospitals. Kernow House provides nursing care for 85 residents from respite care to long term stays.
