Cahal Dallat & Anne-Marie Fyfe

 Charles Causley – musical influences and origins

Current Causley Trust poet/musician in residence, Cahal Dallat, talks about and illustrates his latest project to create new settings of Charles Causley's poems.

Influenced by a range of sources - from street ballads, Gaelic laments and baroque compositions (Causley's Cornish/West-Country and wider British and Celtic heritage) to jazz, blues, 60s folk songs, and the 30s and 40s dance-band numbers he once played locally - these sounds and styles place Causley at the heart of modern life, of contemporary concerns.

Cahal will illustrate his talk with music (on piano, mandolin, accordion, flute) and will be joined by his wife, poet Anne-Marie Fyfe, reading excerpts from Causley's poems, prose, life and letters..

C.L. Dallat, poet, musician and critic, lives in London where he reviews literature and the arts for the Times Literary Supplement and Guardian among others, and has been a regular contributor to BBC Radio 4’s weekly Saturday Review since 1998. He has won the Strokestown International Poetry Competition and his latest collection is The Year of Not Dancing (Blackstaff Press, 2009)
