Bec will be performing at our Mayven Festival, here’s a little bit about her show.
Shine your light or The Mor Maven Jig, is a tune written in the Cornish traditional style. It is a celebration of Mayven women with influences from the Cornish myths and legends of Mermaids and Selkies. It is directly influenced by the sea itself and those wild sea swimmers who embrace the mighty ocean with it’s ungovernable nature: as they share its aquatic mysteries and dive deep into the tempestuous depths of this unique natural environment.
