Jim Causley celebrates over a decade as an acclaimed solo artist and performer with a brand new studio album Forgotten Kingdom, released by Hands On Music on February 19th 2016, and a supporting tour. 

Forgotten Kingdom is a broad collection of songs inspired by Causley’s native Westcountry, mixing ancient history with the songwriter’s own personal history and experience of the world.  For this decennary celebration, Jim has invited some of his closest musical friends to join him as guests. Among them are long-time collaborators James Dumbelton, Nick Wyke & Becki Driscoll, all three members of Show of Hands on whose label (Hands On Music) the album is being released; contemporaries Seth Lakeman, Phillip Henry & Hannah Martin, Miranda Sykes & Rex Preston, Kathryn Roberts, Lukas Drinkwater and Jackie Oates.

Since the release of his debut album in 2005, Causley’s unique voice and persona have helped him become one of the most well-loved and respected figures of today’s contemporary roots and folk music scene. A prolific collaborator, Causley is hugely admired for his work with iconic groups 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, Show of Hands, Kate Rusby, David Rotheray of Beautiful South fame and many more.

During the past decade Causley has been nominated for no less than five BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, won the Spiral Earth Singer of the Year award in 2014, 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 'Pride of the Moor' on BBC TV's Countryfile - Dartmoor Special.

Jim played at The Playhouse, Whitstable in 2010 for Folk in the Barn with Mawkin:Causley   He charmed the audience with his rich vocals and endearing personality.  We’ve long hoped to invite him back again.
