In 2018 Kekezza reformed for the 10th anniversary of their first performance at the Lorient interceltic festival. Having originally come together in 2006, performing traditional dances with a modern approach their high energy performances have been enjoyed at many Celtic events and festivals in places such as Wales, Asturias and Brittany as well as extensively at home in Cornwall.
They take their name from the Cornish word for “heather”, which is often used as a symbol of Cornwall and incorporate the colours of the flowers into their costume. Their main costume is the traditional working dress of the 19th century with headdresses (“gooks” in Cornish) from their local area in the heart of the mining district.
