Neil McMahon

Performance, Workshops, Tuition, Weddings

A fiery fiddler from the depths of Cornwall. Neil brings Cornish music to life with an unsurpassable flair and mastery. A foot in the past but boldly treading new ground with his innovative style.

Over the past few years Neil has worked with several line-ups including the bands for Cornish dance groups Hevva and Kekezza. However, he is probably best known for his collaboration with music producer Brendan McGreal. Together they formed the Cornish Neo Trad duo that is Fools Rock to experiment with and innovate within the growing Nos Lowen style of Cornish traditional Music.

“Kerensa is an assured & devastatingly skilful Hammered Dulcimer player who delivers a performance that is innovative, energetic & confident.”

And who would expect anything less since she has learnt from the masters! In her early days, she received expert tuition from the late Jim Couza & Maclaine Colston, both considered by many to be the best players of the Hammered Dulcimer of their generations. Kerensa has taken their teachings & has developed her own “unique playing style that captivates audiences wherever she performs.”
