More than simply a folk-singer, multi award winning singer-songwriter, musician and proud Devonian, Jim Causley is an all-round entertainer. During the past decade Causley has been nominated no less than six times for a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award. In 2014, he won the Spiral Earth Singer of the Year award , presented his own folk music show on BBC Radio Devon and in 2015 he worked with BBC TV historian Dr Sam Willis to create the music for his show 'Highwaymen, Outlaws and Villains' and was asked to perform his song about Dartmoor tin mining 'Pride of the Moor' on BBC TV's Countryfile - Dartmoor Special. Last year he was nominated as Singer of the Year at the 2017 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards
2017 was also the centenary of Jim’s relative, the celebrated Cornish poet Charles Causley, and award winning filmmaker Jane Darke made a specially commissioned biographical film about the poet which aired on BBC4 in October as part of the Centenary celebrations. The soundtrack to the film was composed entirely by Jim and featured music from his 2013 album ‘Cyprus Well’ of musical settings of Charles’ work.
