…is the collective adventure of three very different musicians:

Guitarist and Vocalist Anthonius Apple

and, Percussionist and Drummer Dangerous David Painter

who together create an irresistible performance drawn from their international musical experience.

Expect: Vintage and thoroughbred Melodies, turbocharged Harmonies; eco-hybrid Rhythms, high-powered Jazz, three-speed Waltzes, torquing Blues, well-oiled Duchy and Western, high-octane Urbane-and-Eastern,  high-mileage Gypsy songs of the road, growling Boogie-Woogie, Torch Songs with a brand new battery and, Original Reflections in the Mirror of Time.

Mr. Coudrille: Guitar, Trumpet, 7 string Banjo, Balalaika, Piano and Vocals

Mr. Apple: Guitar, Banjo, Piano and Vocals

Mr. Painter: Percussion, Washboard, train-whistle and Kit

With skill, gravitas and occasional hilarity they splice their widely varied roots to conjure at times a surprisingly Classical heredity

Kelsey Michael  (Redwood - 14:55)

I write songs and song landscapes that conjure up West Cornwall and Penzance where I live, and perform them with bassist Alisdair Stirling and Greg Dyer on percussion.

My background is Jazz, theatre music, alternative pop and lots of different influences. I am trying to write songs for the here and now that resonate with others shared experiences by holding small things up to the light.

Every experience in Cornwall is coloured by the landscape and its chameleon nature, one minute dark and brooding, the next shimmering golden and blue. I hope to have captured some of that.


Started singing as a theatre performer. Formed Minnow as a songwriting vehicle in 1995 with wonderful improvisers John Edwards (bass), Mark Sanders

(drums), Liam noble and Dean Brodrick (keys), Richard Sanderson (toys etc), Gail Brand (trombone), John Telfer (saxes), Kay Charlton (flugel). Released 'Minnow' on oddo and 'Out of the Woods' on Stereolab's label Duophonic. Played in London till 2003 when moved to Cornwall with my partner and children. Have worked in the past with The High Llammas, Jocelyn Pook, and briefly with the The.

Dancer and singer with Pendeen based Shindig cloggers.

Founder of Fruit tree Songwriters night at The Acorn Penzance, celebrating great local songwriting.
