St Albans Folk Music presents an evening with Devon folk singer Jim Causley, also well known as a musician, singer songwriter and all round entertainer, in a concert on Sunday February 25. Support will come from New Roots 2023 finalists, sisters Alice and Juliet Beadle and the concert will take place at 7.30pm in St Saviour’s Church Hall, 25 Sandpit Lane, St Albans AL1 4DF.
Since the release of his debut album in 2005, Jim 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, Jim 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 and Show of Hands. He is a relative of the celebrated Cornish poet, Charles Causley and made an album of musical settings of his poems, which were used in a film made in 2017 as part of the poet’s centenary celebrations.
‘An evening with Jim Causley’ will draw equally from traditional repertoire, modern songs as well as Jim’s own compositions and settings of poems by Charles Causley, all accompanied on piano and various accordions.
Alice and Juliet Beadle are two sisters who have been making various noises together for 20 years now. They are interested in traditional folk music, and how they can arrange this to reflect the story telling present in folk narratives.
Tickets, price £15, with £10 concessions for students and young people can be booked at www.ticketsource.co.uk/stalbansfolkmusic or on the door.
