Jim Causley
English String Band
Ceilidhs Jan2013_03

The Haddenham Ceilidhs' event on Saturday 5th November will feature The English String Band providing music for dancing (starting at 8.00pm) in the main hall with Barry Goodman calling the dances, and an interval dance display from Taeppas Tump.

Using a combination of fiddles, cellos and double bass the English String Band creates a full and exciting sound playing traditional English tunes from around the country, with both unison fiddle playing and harmonies to add further interest and enjoyment. All the musicians in the English String Band have been playing together in other bands and in music sessions for many years and with this have, within their own unique exciting styles, developed a strong empathy and mutual responsiveness which gives an exciting and tight sound. Absolutely wonderful to dance to.

Meanwhile, the folk concert in the Walter Rose Room starts at 8.40pm with a short spot from our compere, Kitty Vernon, followed by a 20 minute spot from Jimmy Grayburn and then two 45 minutes spots from our main guest of the evening, Jim Causley.

Jim Causley is a folk singer and musician from Devon who specializes in the traditional songs and music of the West Country. Hailing from the village of Whimple in East Devon, Causley was born in Exeter and is a relative of the Cornish poet Charles Causley.

Doors open 7.15pm, dancing starts at 8pm. and an admission charge of £12, lets you dance or enjoy the concert or perhaps a bit of both! Organisers very rarely put up " House Full " signs -- it is a large venue -- but if you are concerned about gaining admission on the evening, just email or telephone John Heydon and he will reserve tickets for you on the door.
