Will Keating

Will can usually be found singing with a Falmouth based male vocal group known as The Oggymen . In 2016, he took the decision to also try his luck at gigging alone with Acoustic Guitar and stomp box. Totally inspired by Cornwall’s rich History and Heritage, and the songs penned by his mentor Harry ‘Safari’ Glasson, he hit the road! Will combines Harry’s songs with traditional Cornish and Celtic folk songs and has received accolades from far and wide.

Will has performed all over Cornwall and beyond with The Oggymen and as a soloist, including 2 tours to the beautiful Islands of Scilly, Hall for Cornwall, Minack Theatre, Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival, Porthleven Food & Music Festival, Falmouth Oyster Festival and Looe Music Festival. Will has also supported award winning group The Changing Room at venues such as The Acorn, Penzance and Calstock Arts Centre.

Will released his eagerly anticipated first solo album on November 2nd 2017 to great acclaim. The album celebrates the song writing of Harry Glasson and includes two live tracks recorded at Will’s sell out Cornish Folk Concert held in the historic St Senara’s Church, Zennor. Special guests are also featured, including a 53 piece Cornish primary school girls choir, award winning banjo player John Dowling, The Oggymen, and the fabulous Helston Town Band.

In 2018 Will is producing, and performing in, Cornish Folk Concerts around the County that will feature special guests and includes venues such as Penlee Park Open Air Theatre, The Tolmen Centre and The Poly.
