St Agnes Composer’s Music Chosen For TV Show

st agnesSt Agnes musician Piers Lewin can now add TV theme composer to his musical accomplishments.

A track, which he wrote at home on St Agnes, has been used to accompany closing credits for a Channel 4 documentary.

Scilly visitor Sir Tony Robinson presented the Channel 4 documentary, Walking Through History.

Producers picked a track performed by Piers and Cornish band Dalla, who are Scilly Folk Festival regulars, for an episode of the programme on smuggling.

Piers says it’s a traditional Cornish tune called Rowing Out, inspired by his 15 years rowing as the stroke in a gig crew.

He’ll get some royalties but says it’s likely to be “just a few quid.”
