Cornish Story is producing an ongoing series of online podcasts from its base at
the Rescorla Centre in mid-Cornwall. This collection will relate to different
aspects of Cornish culture. On the music front Esedhek Rescorla – Rescorla
Session – provides an opportunity for individuals and small groups to perform
and entertain with a particular emphasis on Cornish and Celtic music. This
creative focus will build on the popular tradition of Snail Creep that was revived
at Rescorla back in 2008 and now features as the centrepiece of its annual
Other recordings will build on the oral history origins of Cornish Story
by exploring the life stories of different individuals along with specific cultural
and historical themes. How we ‘tell the tale’ will also feature with some
broadcasts envisaged in the Cornish language and dialect. Cornish food, poetry,
the environment and storytelling will also be included to ensure that there is
something for different tastes.
Although based in mid Cornwall, we are keen to hear from people in the global Cornish diaspora so if you would like to be involved in any way just get in contact.
