2nd MARCH: Come Celebrate Our 2nd Birthday And St Piran’s Weekend Here

(Updated 20:10 07/02/18)

Wow, can’t believe we’ve been here two years now. So much has happened here that I could fill a full post about just that. However one of the highlights of last year was having Kris Lannen and his band The Grenaways who had just come from winning the Kan Rag Kernow (The Cornish Song Contest for those who don’t know) perform here. Their success took them to Ireland for the Féile Pan Cheilteach (Pan Celtic Festival), and on to Toulous for the Echos & Merveilles – Festival Médiéval Fantastique next year!!!

The Grenaways return to The Melting Pot on 7th March to perform their rootsy folk music. For support, they bring with them this year’s Kan Rag winners, The Rowan Tree, and the wonderful Harbottle & Jonas. Combined with a large range of Cornish ales , including a pop-up bar from Keltek Brewery with guest brewers to serve you samples, a late licence and disco, this is sure to be the perfect start to the weekend.

The Grenaways could be said to be mining the rich veins of inspirational ore that course through their home turf, adding a sense of their own ties to the region and especially it’s Celtic heritage. But, they are a band set for far wider horizons than just Cornwall with a massive and alternative sound billowing through their musical sails…

They are rootsy storytellers, unique in the folk style, with songs that are rich in nautical undertones, influenced so much by the sea, the people and coastal living.

2017 has been a significant year for The Grenaways winning the ‘Song For Cornwall’ with their new song, Ster Kosel, which means, Quiet Stars, in the Cornish language. They then went on to place second in the International Celtic Song Competition at the Pan Celtic Festival in Carlow, Ireland and to represent Cornwall at the Festival Interceltique De Lorient in Brittany…

The Rowan Tree was formed for the 2017 Pan Celtic festival by siblings Tom Fosten and Laura Garcia on guitar and flute. The pair are joined by Cornish musician Richard Trethewey on fiddle, mandolin and vocals and Neal Jolly on bass and whistles. Encompassing traditional music predominantly from Cornwall and original pieces with a Celtic feel, The Rowan Tree a unique and engaging sound.

Harbottle & Jonas are a stunning young folk duo based in Totnes, Devon. Their music is eclectic and is always accompanied with a great story. They have received plaudits from folk royalty including Seth & Geoff Lakeman, Jon Boden, Rod Clements, Declan Sinnott, BBC Introducing and have recently been endorsed by Seasalt Clothing. Playing up to 200 gigs each year, these troubadours are to be found far and wide across our beautiful island.

Open Mic Night

Every Wednesday night from 7.30pm the Melting Pot re-open for our long established Open Mic Night. A relaxed assemblage of local musicians who take it in turn to play their own compositions, or just join in and jam along to others.

Anyone is welcome to join in of any skill, from those just starting out with an instrument to the gigging musician on a night off. And everyone is welcome to come along and just listen (or sing along). Any contribution is welcome, from music, poetry, dance, rap, short stories, anecdotes, jokes. Come along and entertain or build that all important confidence from the support of others.

The evening is free to enter and ends around 10pm.

The Melting Pot is a great small venue with its own unique proscenium stage in miniature where we host bands of all kinds and even theatre productions, check out our events page for future gigs.
