The music scene has been quiet for too long so come along and enjoy live bands whilst nestled amongst the vibrant themed gardens of Pinetum in what promises to be an intimate and unique experience amongst nature.
Acts will include solo artists Kaitlyn Elverson & Singing Heart, eclectic indie funk soul musicians hollowbone and Cornish contemporary folk duo Annown – see below for more details…
More about the acts…
For this event hollowbone will be performing stripped back versions of a selection of their full-band songs.
HollowBone are an indie, funk rock band based in South West England.
Band members Ant (founder of imaginalCreatives) and Tobias James (Film & TV Media composer, BBC Introducing, BBC Radio 6 Music) have joined forces creating a unique songwriting partnership resulting in an authentic sound and slick production.
Aside from studio time, HollowBone perform in and around their home areas of Devon and Cornwall, as well as further afield.
24 year old singer-songwriter Kaitlyn Elverson combines country, folk and alternative music with a passion for storytelling. Her self-titled EP features empowering songs like ‘You’re the Voice’ while also delving deep and dark with tracks like ‘Her Name is Grace’. A confident performer, Kaitlyn takes inspiration from nature and all things weird and wonderful, leaving a hidden message within her songs for you to uncover. She gives you a different take on classic country, blending it with modern vocals and crisp acoustic sounds. If you fancy falling down the rabbit hole, step into her wonderland to listen to tales you’ve never heard before.
A chance meeting around a songwriters’ showcase campfire in 2018 led Clare Coltart and Chris Hytch to discover they shared a passion for the history and folk tales of Old Cornwall and to form this contemporary Cornish folk duo.
Their original songs sing tales of ambitious bal maidens, duplicitous wreckers, murder on Bodmin moor, spriggans, giants and brownies, amongst other themes.
They creatively mix sound samples with traditional instruments such as fiddle, banjo, mandolin and guitar. Blues, jazz and even hip-hop influences contribute to their unique sound, with Chris a former Midlands-based music producer.
“Cooking up a beat-based storm” (Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6).
“Proper folk. … Check ’em out!” (Sarah Gosling, BBC Radio Devon)
Singing Heart will perform a selection of songs from his first Album, “Walking the Sacred Dream”. While living in Rostrevor, County Down, Northern Ireland, he began writing, inspired by the rivers, mountains & sea, and the beauty of the place. Now living in Devon, he has continued to write ‘Folk Songs with a Spiritual Edge’
Acclaim for ‘Walking the Sacred Dream’…
“It’s a lovely musical journey, both along family and earthly paths…some great songs and a very strong feeling of warmth across all the tracks.”
“Congratulations on a fine album and I hope your CD will find its way into many hands as surely as your songs will find their way into many hearts.”
“Colum Sands – Singer Songwriter – July 2012”

spirituality • nature • art • wellbeing

We are offering three inspiring events ( from June through to August 2021 ) where you will be able to enjoy a rich tapestry of activities including meditation, facilitated nature walks, art, live music and movement.
After the recent times of restriction and isolation this is an opportunity to remember our appreciation of nature and the healing power of being together.
The Chi Column at Pinetum is connected to a series of power spots across the Earth
Pinetum Gardens is a hidden gem in St Austell which holds a powerful secret. In 2019 a Taoist Master, Christoper Chuang, pinpointed an energy centre which harmonizes the energy flow between sky and earth. It creates a special field of energy which benefits the body, mind and spirit. It is called a Chi Column and is connected to a series of power spots across the Earth.
Working in collaboration with Chang, the owner of Pinetum Gardens, we are committed to co-creating a community which holds Love, Joy, Peace, Beauty and Unity at it’s core (the imaginalCollective Being States).
