Beatles songs in Cornish language

The Cornish-language band Skwardya (“ripping”) is now performing Beatles songs translated into that lesser-used Celtic language, songs like Hi a’th kar (“She Loves You”) and Neppyth (“Something”).

Unfortunately, the copyright holders won’t allow them to record the songs in Cornish (Kernewek).

Good for Skwardya. It’s nice to see a language revival embracing the modern. Since the Beatles are timeless, I guess forty-year old Beatles songs count as modern.
