Jim Causley at Carrington Folk Club Wednesday 15 March 2017

We have had a fantastic pair of guests to start 2017 so hope to continue this run by welcoming JIM CAUSLEY to our club on Wednesday 15 March.
Jim has now been an acclaimed and energetic interpreter of traditional song for over a decade. He graduated from the Traditional Music Course at Newcastle University and by 2005 was making waves in The Devil’s Interval trio. Since 2007 he’s been nominated 5 times in the BBC Folk Awards, with his rich baritone voice and wide repertoire of songs which he mainly accompanies on his accordion.
He returned to his Devon roots after a spell in Mawkin Causley, to research the poems of his great uncle Charles Causley, who taught for 30 years in Launceston. The result was ‘Cyprus Well’ in 2013, a CD with a dozen songs using Charles Causley’s words accompanied on accordion. He has since produced ‘Pride of the Moor’ and will bring out another CD this year to mark the centenary of Charles Causley’s birth, so there’s a lot to look forward to hearing.
