If you head southwest out of London by train or automobile, five or six hours and some 350 miles later you'll reach the southwestern edge of Great Britain, and the seaside region known as West Cornwall. There, on a peninsula extending into the Celtic Sea halfway between Ireland and Brittany, in the picturesque village of St. Ives, lives musician MATT HILLIER and his wife and vocal muse JACQUELINE KERSLEY.
