Event Details

Award-winning musician, singer and all-round entertainer Jim Causley comes to Chagford Church on Saturday 12th November to perform songs from his native Devon. Jim has dedicated much of his career to researching and reviving these forgotten local gems, even unearthing an old folksong collected in Chagford itself.

Jim Causley is a warm, funny, and authentic performer, the perfect ambassador for the revival of Devon folksongs. He is a notable winner of BBC Radio 2 Folk Award ‘Singer of the Year’, and was labelled ‘the finest singer of his generation’ by popular music magazine, Mojo.

The Chagford concert offers an opportunity to hear the distinct flavour of Devon folksongs performed by one of the most well-loved and respected figures of today’s roots and folk scene. Jim’s programme includes his favourite discoveries alongside new Devon songs he’s written himself, thus sustaining and revivifying our rich Devon song tradition into the 21st Century.
