What's been happening this week folks?
On the radio we've had Abi Wyatt with her new poetry collections and I played music by Les Merton and his Beat Reality and also the sound of Fable which is Kyla and Noel.
This week also was our show at the keay which came off ok. With so many people in it everything went very smoothly and not too much anxiety for all concerned.
I was on Mike Browns soundscape on saturday, playing some of my songs. Studio was VERY hot and I was praying the strings wouldn't go out of tune so hopefully they didn't. Will post some tracks here when i have them.
You can listen to Kevins show from July 5th here
Weather hot, who could ask for more from our lovely Cornish summer.

December 21st and the shortest day. Also the last radio show for this year.
Lots of new writers and people on the show this year including Lottie Jaimeson, Janet  from CMR, Steve Clark a new reader, Bill Mycock, Mervin Hall and so many more. It never fails to amaze me that there are always new people coming froward to share their talents .

The Emantee singers performed at Pasty day in Redruth and are going to be at St Pirans day too. They are such keen singers and it is great that they can be part of their community.

Babushka with words by Annie Foxglove and music by me was performed at M and T for two weeks running and was wonderfully well received especially the camels.

Likewise The Mermaid of Zennor which will be at Blantyre again after the holidays.

I am still writing little stories, the occasional rant about the dreadful people wielding machetes in the name of this government. I have a new rant for IDS. Also writing my little songs and hope to make a CD from them at some point.

The picture above is taken from our gangs performance at the John Harris day in Liskeard in October of this year. Me, Nickki, Allen and Annie in Liskeard public rooms.

Nadelik Lowen all.

Sorry to have been absent AGAIN. Needless to say more computer problems. Either I am jinxed or it is just not my year.
Anyhow, well done to all those who sent in a pasty story. Myrna and I didn't have time to read them all out on the show last week so the rest will be on October 26th.
This week it is Miss Foxglove and myself reading from Poetry review, the latsest edition so hope you can join us.

Today, 10.8.2012, Bill Mycock is on the show. He has been recommended by Miss Foxglove and writes about his growing up on a farm in rural Staffordshire.
I have been out locally to the beautiful Fal river and her creeks. Reminds me of a lovely show we did some years ago at Trelissick with songs I'd written about the Fal. Penpol regatta on saturday was a real treat for those of you who have never been. The boats sail past right up to the quay and are so beautiful to watch. No St Mawes one designs this year but the sunbeams were there and so were the working boats and a lugger. I lived on boats for many years and it stays with you all the sense of the sea.The WI make the BEST cakes in the world and at only 50p a slice they are a real bargain. This week it is the start of the Falmouth regatta which lasts a long time and is pretty spectacular.
The Emantees are hoping to sing at Redruth pasty festival on 22nd september.with a special pasty song written for the occasion.We are all VERY excited about it.
Busy with rehearsals for forthcoming productions in St Ives and Liskeard.
Summer is here, if only briefly. It's now getting dark at 9pm so the days are drawing in. Enjoy it while you can mateys.

Hello me hearties, welcome back to my blog. Trials and tribulations which I will not bore you with but I have had no computer for months and having to use my dear husbands when he is not using it. However, I have decided to update the blog instead of Facebook so will direct you all here for what is happening.
Do the write thing is one year old and I have managed to have almost someone or something different every week. This week was young poet Craig Taylor Broad who as well as being a poet makes little videos which he uploads to Youtube. Have a look at his work as it is different and as he says offers a different view of cornwall.
Did you catch the peace camp at Godrevy? I didn't but everyone said it was spectacular.
Redruth is having a pasty festival and the Emantees singers are hoping to make an appearance.
News also for Blantyre theatre group they are putting on their next production of the mermaid of Zennor at the Keay theatre for christmas. next year they hope to be working with Doubletrees school.
Speaking of which, Doubletrees performance of the Bolshy ballets Swan lake and Nutcracker was a grand success. Phil did the stage and lighting set and it was truly fantastic, views of St Petersburg and the St Basils cathedral filled the stage. Thanks to all that took part and came to see it.
Morley Tamblyn lodge are working on their next production at the Keay, their Pantomime Charlie and the Chocolate factory.
Me and Ann Foxglove and Lizzie Stevens along with Miss Eliza Freespirit are going to be doing some singing  so watch this space for further developments. And Ann and I will be performing at St Ives festival in september. Whhooo!!
