A Causley Christmas

Jim is an ever-welcome performer at the club. From Devon, he specializes in the traditional songs and music of the West Country (a relative was the poet Charles Causley) but every performance is different. So don't worry if you have seen him somewhere else recently—this will be his special Causley Christmas! Jim studied Performing Arts at Exeter College and then Folk and Traditional Music at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne and it shows—Mojo Magazine described him ‘as the finest singer of his generation’ (he first came to us  as part of The Devil’s Interval). After six nominations for BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards he won Spiral Earth award as Singer of the Year in 2014. His newest album ’Live in Widecombe’ again draws upon his rich West Country background—The Guardian has noted him as ‘Spearheading the West Country folk revival’ but Jim’s .music with his unique voice and persona is for everyone.
