THE GRENAWAYS:

The Grenaways could be said to be mining the rich veins of inspirational ore that course through their home turf, adding a sense of their own ties to the region and especially it's Celtic heritage. But, they are a band set for far wider horizons than just Cornwall with a massive and alternative sound billowing through their musical sails...

They are rootsy storytellers, unique in the folk style, with songs that are rich in nautical undertones, influenced so much by the sea, the people and coastal living.

2017 has been a significant year for The Grenaways winning the 'Song For Cornwall' with their new song, Ster Kosel, which means, Quiet Stars, in the Cornish language. They then went on to place second in the International Celtic Song Competition at the Pan Celtic Festival in Carlow, Ireland and to represent Cornwall at the Festival Interceltique De Lorient in Brittany...


THE ROWAN TREE:

The Rowan Tree was formed for the 2017 Pan Celtic festival by siblings Tom Fosten and Laura Garcia on guitar and flute. The pair are joined by Cornish musician Richard Trethewey on fiddle, mandolin and vocals and Neal Jolly on bass and whistles. Encompassing traditional music predominantly from Cornwall and original pieces with a Celtic feel, The Rowan Tree a unique and engaging sound.
