Newquay based indie-folk band Our Atlantic Roots are to release a duet version of the Harry Glasson song Cornwall My Home in celebration of St Piran’s Day.  

The song has quickly become a firm favourite with music lovers who have a connection to Cornwall, especially those who live out of county.   

Transatlantic husband-and-wife duo Mac and Laura Johnston have given it a raw, stripped-back feel, recorded from home with ethereal vocals, acoustic guitar and sweeping cello.   

Though Mac is originally from North Carolina and Laura from South Yorkshire, both feel a strong connection to Cornwall and immediately connected with Harry’s timeless lyrics.   

“I call Cornwall my heart home,” says Laura. “My family and I would make a ‘Cornwall Countdown’ every summer, crossing off the days until we’d make the journey down the M5 to the land of crystal-blue water and rugged cliffs.  

“I’ve loved Cornwall deeply since I first visited as a child, and I feel so blessed to now call this special place my home.  

“Harry’s song has become an anthem for so many people, and we wanted to release our own version. Our hope is that through this many more people get to hear and fall in love with the song too.”  

The track was mixed by Matt Cotterill and mastered by Sam Proctor. It will be the final track on Memories Live On, an EP which will be released later in the spring.  

Our Atlantic Roots have had over 3.7 million streams on their music worldwide, and have been commended by the likes of Nashville hit songwriter Mark Cawley and British folk patriarch Geoff Lakeman.
