Tom Jones performed at Eden Sessions, summer break in Cornwall

The summer Eden Sessions continued over the weekend with a show stopping performance from Sir Tom Jones, who returned to perform in Cornwall for the first time in 33 years.



Yesterday, Sunday 26, saw thousands turn up to see the Welsh legend belt out his most well-known tunes, as well as some tracks off his most recent album. One of his songs was dedicated to his late wife Linda who lost her battle with cancer earlier this year.

The singer also performed his own rendition of Prince's Kiss, who also died this year, during the encore as well as his much loved classic Thunderball.

The last time the singer was performing in Cornwall, he appeared at the now closed Cornwall Coliseum in Carlyon Bay near St Austell.

The Eden Sessions, a series of spectacular music events held over the summer, has been ongoing since 2002, and featured a whole host of well-known musicians from the UK and across the globe, such as Muse, Brian Wilson, Amy Winehouse, Frank Turner, Mumford & Sons and more.

Cornwall has always attracted big names in music, for both recording at the legendary Sawmills Studios to the festivals and concerts held throughout the year. Cornwall has also created some home-grown talent too, so when on a summer break in Cornwall at our boutique hotel you can enjoy some local music on an evening out.
