Tam Lin Retold - Corinne Harragin perfor

Tam Lin Retold

by Corinne Harragin & Nick Hart present by Trevow Helston

"This is storytelling at its best."
~ Audience comments

7.30pm 24th May
at The Ladder, Redruth

2.30pm & 7.30pm 25th May 2024
at Helston Old Cemetery Chapel

Inspired by the well-known Scots/English border Ballad of Tam Lin, this show is unscripted, orally told, and accompanied by live, mostly improvised music. In this way the audience is central to the performance.


We make our way into the greenwood together.

The ballad may be known as Tam Lin, but he’s only a part of it. Described by audiences as ‘joyous’,‘refreshing’ and ‘bold’, Tam Lin Retold recentres unsung voices in Scots/English folklore.


Enchanting and sharp in equal measure, this is badass border balladry for the old and the new.

"Ask her [Corinne Harragin] to tell you a story, and wherever it comes from in the world, or from inside her, it will be yours also.
~ Claire Carter, Artistic Director for Kendal Mountain Festival

"I’ve never been to a storytelling performance before, and I would come again. It was a fantastic experience that played with my imagination that hasn’t been used in that way for a while."
~ James Snook, Alma Tavern Theatre
