The magic of the Midsummer Solstice among the leylines and Tors of Celtic Cornwall attended by people from all over the world to feel the energies of the folklore and legends and to be among the little people. David White of BBC Radio Cornwall took time to visit with his cameraman and before they left they had both joined the fairy clan, a pity they didn’t stay longer maybe around the bewitching hours of darkness and first light they may have really seen the little people. Here is a record of their visit in three parts as placed on u tube.

Sharon Hurst UK artist in watercolor and mixed media, well known for her lectures and workshops that have helped and encouraged creative talent , talks tips with Fairy artist Myrea Pettit at the Three Wishes Faery Festival to celebrate the 2009 Midsummer Solstice in magical Celtic Cornwall. “There is no better connection to ”Fairy’ than to be among them at the time and place where for centuries legends of Albion and the little people have inspired generations with their appearances, tricks pranks, and kindnesses too. This is the only way to know how to understand what a fairy is all about, who they are, to feel, see and create their images so that others can believe they really exist and can believe in them and the beauty of nature.”
