A Devon folk singer will appear in a concert hosted by St Albans Folk Music later this month.

‘An evening with Jim Causley’ will take place on Sunday, February 25 at 7.30pm in St Saviour's Church Hall, Sandpit Lane.

The concert will feature a mix of traditional repertoire, modern songs and original compositions, with support from sisters Alice and Juliet Beadle, who are New Roots 2023 finalists.

Since his debut album in 2005, Jim Causley has become a respected figure in today's contemporary roots and folk scene.

He has worked with groups including 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.

In 2017, he made an album of musical settings of poems by his relative, the Cornish poet Charles Causley (1917 - 2003), which was used in a film for the poet's centenary celebrations.


The Beadle sisters, who have been musical collaborators for two decades, are supporters of traditional folk music and narrative storytelling through song.

Tickets are available for £15, with £10 concessions for students and young people.

They can be booked online via ticket source or on the door.
