Jon Otway & Wild Willy Barrett

Thursday 20th June 2019 ~ 8pm - Jon Otway & Wild Willy Barrett

This magnetic bond still holds after more than 40 years of attempted escapes. The contrast between the dead pan humour of Barrett and mad onstage antics of Otway are hilarious to watch.  For any Otway/Barrett virgins out there who don’t know what to expect, be prepared for everything as the duo jump from one hit and 40 near misses to another in this amazing and irreverent performance by two master entertainers.

Jim Causley 'Traditional Songs of Devon'

Friday 5th July 2019 ~ 8pm - Jim Causley 'Traditional Songs of Devon'

A proud Devonian, Jim Causley has dedicated much of his career to researching and reviving the forgotten gems of songs from his native western peninsula.

Drawing from the collections of Victorian folksong collectors such as Sabine Baring-Gould and Cecil Sharp as well as more modern collectors and writers including Cyril Tawney and Tony Rose, living singers as well as a few of his own self-penned hits, Jim presents an evening jam-packed with Devonshire delights that richly bring to life the distinct flavour of music-making from this unique corner of the British Isles. From Arscott of Tetcott to Widecombe Fair and everything in between, this show is a thoroughly enjoyable introduction to Devon’s rich musical culture.

More than simply a folk-singer, multi award winning singer-songwriter and musician Jim Causley is an all-round entertainer and during the past decade Causley has been nominated no less than six times for a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award, last year he was nominated as “Singer of the Year” at the 2017 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, he won the Spiral Earth Singer of the Year award in 2014, presented his own folk music show on BBC Radio Devon and in 2015 he worked with BBC TV historian Dr Sam Willis to create the music for his show 'Highwaymen, Outlaws and Villains' and was asked to perform his song about Dartmoor tin mining 'Pride of the Moor' on BBC TV's Countryfile - Dartmoor Special. 2017 was also the centenary of Jim’s relative; the celebrated Cornish poet Charles Causley and award winning filmmaker Jane Darke made a specially commissioned biographical film about the poet which aired on BBC4 TV on 1st October as part of the Centenary celebrations. The soundtrack to the film was composed entirely by Jim and featured music from his 2013 album ‘Cyprus Well’ of musical settings of Charles’ work.

Since the release of his debut album in 2005, Causley’s unique voice and persona have helped him become one of the most well-loved and respected figures of today’s contemporary roots and folk scene. A prolific collaborator, Causley is hugely admired for his work with iconic groups The Devil’s Interval and Mawkin:Causley as well as playing, touring and recording alongside Waterson:Carthy, John McCusker, Eddie Reader, Graham Coxson, Shirley Collins, Michael Morpurgo, Show of Hands, Kate Rusby, David Rotheray of Beautiful South fame and many more. He was described by Mojo Magazine as “the finest singer of his generation” and they put Forgotten Kingdom in their Top Ten Folk Albums of 2016 list. Westcountry father of folk Geoff Lakeman described Causley as possessing “A voice in a million” in a recent interview in the Western Morning News, some accolade indeed!
