Cornish culture has stretched far away from this peninsula, exporting its skills, industry and its dance
on one leg and a fairly careful balancing act which tends to weed out the dancers who have been enjoying a few drinks! As the dance progresses the the tune slows down, which makes it increasingly difficult to balance. A version of the tune is known in Cornwall as Helygan which is the Cornish for willow.
Today we continue to celebrate the relationship between the
Isle of Man and Cornwall with our traditional music and dance festivals. Cornish groups regularly visit the Isle of Man and the spectacular Manx Dance group, Perree Bane, will be representing the Island at our own Celtic Festival, Lowender Peran this month.
Lowender Peran takes place at the Hotel Bristol In Newquay from 1–4 November.
