Haunt the Woods

Picture this. It's a full moon as we meander along a Cornish lane. We cross an old stone bridge with the River Loveny rushing under foot and head into the woods, haunting. Moonlight filters through the trees as shadowy figures appear, heavily wrapped against the cold; we descend into a cave...


Yes this was us last night! We had an evening of total mind blowing musical immersion from Haunt the Woods at The Rumstore, Carnglaze Caverns.




Their sound is truly unique, phenomenal harmonies, spine tingling vocals and lyrics that create a shiver through the bones with influences from Pink Floyd, Jeff Buckly and Radiohead. It was moving, no it was spellbinding.




They were supported by Crazy Arm and Tors who were superb.


So why am I waxing lyrically about music on my blog about textiles? Because yesterday I was merrily drawing trees with my sewing machine, to Opaque creating my interpretation of Cotehele, a National Trust property here in Cornwall. A few more titivations and then it's ready for the framers in preparation for our Spring Exhibition at the Tamar Valley Centre.
