"R2 MAGAZINE"

"Once in a while something delightful and rather unexpected falls through my letterbox and this album is a case to point." - Dai Jeffries


"FOLK RADIO UK"

"The south west tip of England has also been a lure for artists and creative sorts, inspired by the rugged beauty and comparative tranquility, which naturally comes with being at the end of the line. Metaphorically as well as keeping close to the elements of salt air and sea spray, The Grenaways could be said to be mining the rich veins of inspirational ore that course through their home turf, adding a sense of their own ties to the region and especially it’s Celtic heritage. Be Still Young Heart is a record that brims with a spirituality, but one that has more in keeping with Gaelic language songs, filled with passion, feeling and suggestion, rather than offering a moral A-Z roadmap of how to live your life." - Simon Holland


"PETER MAHER MASTERING"

Bio

The Grenaways could be said to be mining the rich veins of inspirational ore that course through their home turf of Cornwall where they add a sense of their own ties to the region and especially it’s Celtic heritage. But, they are a band set for far wider horizons with a massive and alternative sound billowing through their musical sails… They are rootsy storytellers, unique in the folk style, with songs that are rich in nautical undertones, influenced so much by the sea, its people and coastal living.
2017 has been a significant year for The Grenaways winning the ‘Song For Cornwall’ with their new song, Ster Kosel, which means, Quiet Stars, in the Cornish language. They then went on to place second in the International Celtic Song Competition at the Pan Celtic Festival in Carlow, Ireland and to represent Cornwall at the Festival Interceltique De Lorient in Brittany…
