SKILLYWIDDEN – a nos lowen (Cornish dance night) at THE ACORN theatre. We’re taking the Park indoors! Skillywidden were due to be with us in July but circumstances proved otherwise – but they’re back!
Legends of Cornish Celtic dance music Skillywidden frequently pack dance floors with their take on the nos lowen style of Cornish dance music. Just have a listen, and soak up the sound of Cornish traditional music at its best.
The line-up includes members of internationally acclaimed Cornish traditional music band Dalla on bouzouki, fiddle, clarinets, viola and percussion, with the addition of guest musicians drawn from the cream of Cornwall’s talent in other genres. Their exhilarating performances convey the sheer joy they take in Cornwall’s indigenous culture.
Guest musicians will be joining the band, recruited from the day’s Masterclasses at The Acorn!
“Sublime …a kind of World Music with a Cornish accent” (Rock ‘n’ Reel)
“The music has a dervish quality that will grab the listener by the throat.” (Folk and Roots)
