Fable Folk album launch on Lady Daphne

June 16, 2024 - 18:30 to 22:00
Charlestown, Cornwall


Lose yourself in the haunting & ethereal sounds of the flute, Celtic harp & vocal harmonies of Fable

Local folk duo Fable are excited to be performing onboard to celebrate the launch of their debut album, An Tir Orth Penn (The land at the end). The title track, along with other original songs, showcase Kate & Alison’s love of Cornwall’s landscape, stories and history. They have also included some of their favourite traditional folk songs on the album, played in their unique style and featuring some gorgeous vocal harmonies.
A more contemporary & very special inclusion is the wonderful Davey Dodds song, The Magpie. This is particularly poignant as the dock workers in Charlestown Harbour back in the China Clay days were nicknamed “magpies” as they worked around , and became covered in, both coal and white china clay dust. Lady Daphne was very involved in transporting China Clay in the 1920s and 1930s, at the start of her over 100 year career.
