Didjan is the name given to the small morsel of pasty left for the buccas or mine spirits by Cornish miners, in the hope of ensuring safety when working underground. Bec Applebee and Richard Trethewey are two people with whom Cornish music is definitely in safe hands! Individually Bec and Richard have a wealth of experience playing at the highest level at the forefront of Cornish music in bands such as Dalla, The Rowan Tree, The Grenaways and Tosta and have taken their vision all over the world from village halls to the Royal Albert Hall to the largest Celtic festivals in the world!
Bec and Richard are passionate about telling the unbelievable stories of remarkable characters that have given Cornwall such a strong sense of identity and made the Cornish who we are today. Didjan have a creative approach to their music, incorporating a wide variety of tools such as fiddle, cittern, crowdy crawn, voice, spoken word and dance. Whilst a small morsel, Didjan create a sound and vision that goes beyond their number and are already creating a wave of excitement for what is to come!
Didjan will be joined by award winning songwriter Kris Lannen of 'Brother Sea'.
