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.


Spanish Guitar Player

Oliver St. John

I live and work in St Ives, Cornwall. The guitar is my main instrument. I also play keyboards, a five-string bass guitar, and the Egyptian dabouka. I am primarily a self-taught musician that also attended Bristol University to study music theory, harmony and composition.

Songwriter page:

I have broad experience of various styles and genres including rock, indie, reggae and fusion. I have performed with various bands as well as playing solo as a songwriter and classical guitarist. I like to think that I am able to bring that familiarity with other forms of music to playing and performing on the classical guitar.

I am listed in the online registry of contemporary composers. I recently began to compose a set of Preludes for the classical guitar. The first two, A Minor and E Minor are complete.
