Day Four on the South West Tour

We’ve been on the road for four days now. Three nights of troll slaying with seriouskitchen. You can see our first tour diary on the SK website. We’re headed further south now, off to Penzance Folk Club tomorrow evening and then gradually work our way back north again finishing the tour at Halsway Manor at the start of November. Wiveliscombe was in a lovely church with some lovely artwork as a backdrop. A wonderful church was to one side and Jonny, who was missing his spinet decided to have a good old play. Some video was taken, so once we manage to get enough internet, we’ll add it to the Ancient Technology Centre movies.


We dropped off four nyckelharpas at Halsway Manor ready for the course next week and left them gently snoring in the storage cupboard. We’re hoping that they’ll have multiplied when we get back!


We drove down over the moors today to reach Liskeard. A very scenic route. One cow was obviously ready to donate his horns to Jonny as he wouldn’t get off the road. Pawing at the road we gently drove round him off road. Maybe not cow-horn musical instrument material.

The weather has been incredible. RAIN! We have never been so wet in our lives! We’re hoping it’ll dry out soon.
