Possessing one of the great folk voices, five times BBC Radio 2 Folk Award nominee Jim Causley is a singer/accordionist who is passionate about traditional song and particularly that of his native Devon. Previous incarnations include The Devil's Interval and Mawkin:Causley and he has recorded with the likes of Waterson:Carthy, Show of Hands, John McCusker and David Rotheray of Beautiful South fame. In recent years, projects have included touring with Steve Knightley and Kate Rusby.
Jim has recorded an album of the poems of his distant relative to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the death of this celebrated Cornish poet. Jim has set to music a diverse selection of Causley’s poems to give the audience a taster of the poet’s great body of work. The album ‘Cyprus Well’ was recorded live in Causley’s house in Launceston, Cornwall and many of the tracks feature Causley’s own piano. Jim aims to bring wider attention to Causley’s poems and raise awareness of the Charles Causley Trust and their mission to preserve Causley’s house as a writers’ retreat.
He is renowned for his warm and jovial stage presence and his rich singing voice has been likened to the fruitiest of ales!
Jim will be performing tonight with multi-instrumentalist, Lukas Drinkwater on guitar.
