New folk music by young performers will be launched at a troyl as part of this year's Roseland Festival.

St Mawes Memorial Hall will echo with the melodies of historic songs, tunes, and dances from April 24.

It will celebrate the Roseland’s fishing, farming, and local traditions in a stunning showcase of local talent.

Led by Du Hag Owr, Martha Woods, and The Bray Family, attendees will be immersed in Cornish culture via unique performances crafted for this year's 'Music of the Roseland'.

Falmouth Packet:

A collaboration among heritage and music groups aimed at preserving and promoting Cornwall’s Roseland peninsula music throughout 2024.

The standout feature is the unveiling of creative work produced as part of ‘Music of the Roseland’.

Finley Bray will perform a tune to accompany the Portscatho Furry Dance.

Mr Bray, who began making waves on Cornwall's folk scene at 16, recently showcased his talents at Shennagys Jiu – a music festival on the Isle of Man that celebrates Celtic connections.

Martha Woods will also debut two new pieces inspired by historic Roseland folk tunes, one of which pays homage to the 'Oxen Ploughing' song of circa 1940s or 50s.

Dr Merv Davey, Cornish National Music Archive co-editor, said: "One and all are welcome at this great event celebrating local traditional music and dance on the Roseland.

"It’s brilliant to have emerging performers to play alongside such firm favourites as Du Hag Owr, and I know Martha and Finley are really looking forward to launching these reworkings and reinterpretations of historic local music and dance."

Local favourite Du Hag Owr, famous for serenading the G7 world leaders at the international summit in Carbis Bay in 2021, will entertain the crowd with their iconic style of Cornish shanty songs.

Tickets are available for £5 from the Visit Truro Box Office.
