The Moth &The Mic Showcase

Join us for an evening of the best in emerging talent from the Falmouth music scene hosted by John Cartwright (Smokin’ Pilchards). 

This Showcase will feature a variety of musical styles and genres with musicians drawn from the popular ‘The Moth & The Mic’ evening hosted at The Moth & The Moon, Falmouth. 

Featuring (running oder tbc):


Stemming from 'Senara', the Cornish word for 'Light', here are a band you can definitely say have had part of their origin inspired by the Moth and Moon.

With each individual band member having already utilized the open mic, prior to their groups inception, Sonara built their sound from the folk, etheral, and personal tones that the Moth provided them. Through their dynamic songwriting, you will get to hear a range of styles, employing the use of alternate tunings, violin, guitar, and traditional-style drumming.

Sienna Holihan

Sienna is a contemporary singer/songwriter whose music is inspired by Jazz, Folk and Country. Her songs are written with an unusual approach to harmonic vocals.

Seb Howard

Seb is an accomplished, self taught street busker. His improvised music will take you on unique journey with no two shows being the same. With complex and haunting guitar work Seb’s music is a guaranteed crowd pleaser.

Jake Clifton

Jake Clifton is a singer / songwriter fron East Sussex. His indie-folk music and strange lyrics tell stories of life, love and loss.

Rob Burns

A committed socialist, political activist and Civil Rights worker since the 60’s – his taste in music is part of his soul and he has been performing Folk songs since 1967 – he links his music with his social conscience, mainly singing songs of the ‘Working Classes’, many from the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s – dirges as he sometimes refers to them.
