Richard Trethewey – Movie Night at Truro Plaza Cinema

Sorry FULL

For those that missed out on tickets to the ‘Two Halves’ launch – this is for you! For those who did get tickets… this is also for you!

After the amazing reaction from the films I have made with Grace Fox and Rob Moth that accompany my songs ‘Hope in a Jam Jar’, ‘Queen of the Cornish Rhine’, ‘Frenchman’s Creek’ and yet to be released ‘Bringing the Harvest Home’ I have decided to put this event on to see these wonderful films on the big screen!

I will also perform the whole album live in ‘two halves’  accompanied by the wonderful Steve Hawker on piano and Neal Jolly on double bass.

The event will take place in Screen 2. Built in the original stalls area, Screen Two at The Plaza uses the original stage & screen location from when the Plaza was first built.

Refreshments will be available from the bar pre show and during an interval and vinyls, CDs and other merch available to buy! (Card payments can be taken for all merch).

About Us – WTW Cinemas : WTW Cinemas

Two Halves was first imagined for vinyl. It presents one side of songs and music inspired by stories from Cornwall’s wonderfully evocative river estuaries. The second half is more akin to his debut album ‘Dig Where You Stand’ and tells stories associated with Cornwall’s industrial heritage. Richard is joined by a selection of wonderful musicians and friends that he has worked with over the last few years.

The first side contains songs inspired by tales of smuggling and piracy to wonderfully eccentric royal visits, forgotten castles that overlooked the estuary and the harvest of the kea plum trees growing  along the banks of the River Fal. 

The second half starts with the true story of Tretheweys who left the Clay Country to seek their fortune in Canada before moving onto a song inspired by and featuring the various sounds involved in the mining industry. As well as the sound of hammers being struck underground,  Richard once again revisits his Brass Band connections and is accompanied by St Dennis Band Quartet on this track. From the story of an ice skating vicar taking to a frozen clay pit in the 1930’s  to exploring Cornwall’s diaspora connections and ending with a lullaby (featuring Richard’s father singing in Cornish)  inspired by Richard’s work as a Music Therapist for Children’s Hospice South West. 

Richard has reunited with Dig Where You Stand producer Phil Innes as well as working with Iain McKnight again on the brass arrangement to produce this follow up album eleven years on. They do say Cornishmen do it ‘dreckly!
