Richard Trethewey at Wadebridge Folk Club, NT cafe, Pentireglaze PL27 6QY

Born in Cornwall’s Clay Country, Richard Trethewey is a singer, fiddle and cittern player delivering his distinct take on Cornish music, giving Cornwall a truly authentic voice. Passionate about unearthing near-forgotten gems of Cornish history, Richard breathes life and emotion into what might otherwise be overlooked.

Richard completed the Newcastle based Folk music degree in 2011, qualified as a Music Therapist in 2017 and continues working at the SW Children’s Hospice, Little Harbour.

His debut album ‘Dig Where You Stand’ was released in 2012 and since then he has been involved in other bands and artists (The Rowan Tree, Didjan (with Bec Applebee), The Grenaways, Kesson, Brother Sea, Harbottle and Jonas, Jim Causley, Leski, Crowd and Cousin Jack’s Theatre, performing the Mousehole Cat yearly in Mousehole and touring the show in the USA and London) however ‘Two Halves’ marks only his second solo release.

As The Rowan Tree, Richard and the band delivered arguably the most ambitious Cornish diaspora project undertaken to date. In 2020 the band released the fruits of their year long project ‘Kolar’s Gold’, an album collaborating with Indian musicians across the globe, which told the stories of the Cornish who emigrated and started new lives working the Gold Fields of Southern India.

In 2020 Richard was made a Bard of the Cornish Gorsedh, taking the name ‘Kaner Drollys’ meaning Singer of Stories. In 2021 Richard released a song and tune book ‘Story Singer’, a collection of his original songs and tunes. It is precisely this, singing and protecting stories, which drives Richard’s passion for and pride in being a voice for Cornwall and its unique history and people.
