Date: Sunday 4th June 2017
Jim Causley has done as much as anyone to promote the name of Charles Causley.
A distant relative of Charles, Jim is steadily establishing himself as a major artist on the folk scene, championing the folk heritage of the West Country.
He is a regular contributor to Radio 2’s The Folk Show and has made several TV appearances.
His collection of Charles’s poems set to Jim’s own arrangements on the CD Cyprus Well was described by The Guardian as “A thoughtful, gently effective tribute.”
Anyone who attended the launch of this CD at the 2014 Festival will have fond memories of that evening.
Jim, recently nominated for a Radio 2 Folk Award, returns with a selection of Charles’s children’s poems, again set to his own arrangements.
It is fitting that the launch of this new CD provides the closing event of the Festival weekend.

Charles Causley Festival
The historic town of Launceston welcomes you to the Charles Causley Festival.
Almost certainly Launceston’s most famous son, Charles Causley is recognised as one of the greatest poets the nation ever had.
Join us in early June to celebrate the very best in the fields of literature and the performing arts.
