About the show
Roots, trunk and branches - no, not a gardening programme, but a
conversation with John and Gretchen Cornwall, who perform as World Tree
Music. The experiences and vision of these two intriguing and imaginative
Thanet-based musical performers illustrate impeccably that artistic creation
does not stop with purely visual projects.
Margate in Thanet has become the centre of an eruption in a variety of
artistic endeavours, with the arrival of the Turner Gallery and the
explosion in exposure this has brought to the creative talent of the area.
It is fertile ground for the growth of World Tree Music - enchanting,
evocative and mysterious, these are dramatic musical presentations, John and
Gretchen being perfectly suited to exploring their roots and branches in a
programme in sound from KASPAAR-TCR.
