Join us in Zennor for another magical night of music and story. We are please to announce the return of Spindle Wayfarer who is back at the Tinners this year to wow us with some more storys.

Chris Salisbury whose alter-ego 'Spindle Wayfarer' is a story-teller who sits by the fire after dark with his cloak and staff and engages young and old in his tales. With a background in the theatre, a training in therapy and a career in environmental education he uses every creative means at his disposal to encourage people to enjoy and value the natural world. He has worked with Ray Mears and John Rhyder, Joseph Cornell and Steve van Metre, amongst many others. He is a course facilitator at Schumacher College, where he also directs the Call of the Wild Foundation programme. He is a professional storyteller aka 'Spindle Wayfarer', and is the founder and Artistic Director for the Westcountry Storytelling Festival. Chris is also trained as a Be the Change facilitator and offers symposiums for interested groups.

Crepuscular Chris Salisbury weaves an enchanting spell to delight in the darkness of December, and immerse into some of the mysterious magic of the otherworld. Expect to be unsettled, tickled and teased by a fabulously far-fetched hoard of stories and songs emerging from the shadows of the past.
A spine-tingling, toe-curling yet heart-warming evening from a master of Westcountry storytelling....

He will be joined again by some very special guests.

Fran and Flora
Delivering heart-felt laments, exquisite songs, toe-tappable dance tunes and tales from their musical adventures, Fran & Flora will draw you into an intimate and heart-opening space. The duo weaves together their love for melodic lyricism, groove, improvisation and experimentation with their many influences - including traditional music from Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Celtic, Breton, Klezmer and Gypsy music traditions, to create a sound that is both timeless and contemporary. Described as "fiercely passionate" by BBC Radio 3s Late Junction DJ Max Reinhardt, their performance allows for the expression of very real human stories and emotions.
"Outstanding" - Talvin Singh OBE

"Truly Unique" - Fire in The Mountain Festival

"Francesca and Flora are fiercely passionate about their music and its a passion that they effortlessly communicate to their audience. They are a winning and magical admixture of instrumental excellence, captivating playing and singing ability, delectable stage presence, supremely well chosen eastern european repertoire and matchless original tunes... This a string duo bound for glory." - Max Reinhardt, BBC Radio 3's Late Junction

"Fran & Flora both share a vivacious and infectious enthusiasm for the world of music, an enthusiasm which is not wedded to any particular tradition but instead stems from a fundamental interest in human expression. Together they make music which is nothing short of magical, borne of true friendship, shared experience, mutual trust, and a willingness to surrender in performance through listening ." - Sam Beste, Hejira & Lima Limo Records

Plus we are also really pleased to be welcoming back the extremely talented Dave Hart.

Come down to the Tinners for a night of fancy dress and spooky stories. There will be prizes for the best fancy dress and best pumkin as well as some Halloween games and some story telling from Mark Harandon.

Mark Harandon has told stories for a long time.

He was born and brought up in West Yorkshire but has lived most of his life in Cornwall. His father came to Britain from Bukowina, East Poland via the Soviet prisoner camps and was, as a young boy, taken to see the last Austro-Hungarian Emperor Franz Josef; his grandmother came from a circus family who had established the first touring circus in Western Australia, paid in gold dust. So it was inevitable that stories were to dominate Mark’s life.

He studied English at Oxford University and drama at Leeds University. Then he headed West. For many years he was head of a performing arts faculty and taught theatre. Meanwhile he told stories, at a time when storytelling was still thought to be an almost forgotten art, in a place where the stories still lived. Now he brings stories, objects, people and places alive in schools, theatres, mines, woods and unexpected places. Sometimes he is himself and sometimes he is someone else. His work has featured on BBC radio 4.

Mark lives with his family, three horses, two cats, some geese and a ghost high up between Penzance and St Ives, where on windy days the sea spray comes to visit. Once, a blacksmith lived there. But now Mark forges stories to fire the imagination.
