Creative Kernow, based at Krowji, is the umbrella organisation for the following nine projects. Together we support the production, promotion and distribution of work by creative practitioners in Cornwall because we believe in creativity's transformative power and want more people to benefit from it.

Since their formation in 2014 they have released two EPs, ‘KYNSA’, meaning first in Cornish, which was recorded at Cube Recording in May 2015. It includes original and newly arranged traditional Cornish tunes. It was launched at the 45th Festival Interceltique de Lorient 2015, one of the largest Celtic festivals in the world and has been a great success both abroad and in the UK.

In May 2017 they returned to Cube Recording to produce their second EP ‘Granite’.  One of the concepts with this EP was to experiment with different sounds and effects to add new depth to their music. Using additional instruments such as Shruti Box, Jubaltone and ‘found sound’ the duo also added two songs to this EP. There are also newly arranged Cornish tunes alongside a few Scottish and Irish tunes as well as new material written by Stuart MacQuarrie and Jamie Toms.
