Porthlystry as contributed to the Racca Project 1995/97. Originally transcribed from memory by Merv Davey in 1978: ” I stayed with my aunt Mrs Elsie Millis for several summers between 1969 and returning to Cornwall to live in 1975. Elsie would often talk abut her father, my grandfather Edward Veale, and his interest in Old Newquay and his involvement with the Old Cornwall Society. She remembered him dancing the lattappouch at family get togethers between the wars. It was danced to a nonsense song. She hummed the tune that she remembered or sang it to la la la.”
Lattapouch danced to Porthlystry captured on mobile phone during ceilidh at Brsitol Hotel Newquay as part of Gorsedh Kernow’s Esedhvos in September 2017.
