On Wednesday 6 November 2013 at 7.30pm, the University of Exeter Arts & Culture Team in conjunction with the University’s Heritage Collections Department are proud to present one of Devon’s, and indeed the UK’s finest contemporary folk singers, Jim Causley.
Accompanied by talented guitarist Lukas Drinkwater, Jim will be performing the wonderful songs he has composed to the words of the poems of his distant relative Charles Causley.
Jim is renowned for his warm and jovial stage presence and his rich singing voice has been likened to the fruitiest of ciders.
As a special addition to this gig, which marks the 10th anniversary of Charles Causley’s death, copies of some of Charles Causley’s manuscripts of the poems Jim has set to music will be on display. Originals of these manuscripts are held in the University’s Special Collections.
The gig also provides an opportunity to experience one of the University’s newest music venues, Kay House Duryard, which is situated in Lower Argyll Road, off Cowley Bridge Road. A bar will be open on the night.
Advance tickets are £10 (£8 for students) and can be purchased from the Exeter Northcott Box Office, either in person, by telephone, on 01392 493493, or online via the University’s Arts & Culture website, (www.artsandcultureexeter.co.uk ), where more information about the event can also be found.
