CHRISTMAS SPECIAL                         History through Song

Saturday, 7 December at 7pm

Jurys Inn, Western Way, Exeter

NOTE:   DAY/DATE CHANGE

 

Christmas Special. History through the contemporaneous thoughts (and voices) of ordinary people. We will explore our history via folk songs from Jim Causley, an English folk singer, songwriter and musician from Devon who specializes in the traditional songs and music of the West Country. Born in Exeter, he is a relative of the Cornish poet Charles Causley.

 

Described by Mojo Magazine as "the finest singer of his generation", Causley grew up in the heart of Cider Country, an area rich in traditional music with its thriving wassailing tradition and its close proximity to Sidmouth and Dartmoor folk festivals.  The event is free to members but booking is essential.  The link is:
