    • As the saying goes; there is no rest for the wicked and hot on the heels of Forgotten Kingdom's release i am already getting stuck into my next project! After the success of 2013's Cyprus Well album where i set to music the poetry of my late relative, the poet Charles Causley, i have been comissioned by Bodmin Moor Poetry Festival to set to music a selection of poems by another wonderful Cornish poet and close friend of Charles Causley's; Jack Clemo. 2016 is the centennary of Jack Clemo's birth and with the excellent help of Clemo expert, author and poet Dr Luke Thompson I have set ten of Clemo's poems to music and have begun recording them with a fine selection of Cornish musicians. The finished product will become a cd which will be performed and launched at this year's Bodmin Moor Poetry Festival as well as some other exciting dates yet to be confirmed. We are recording in Brannel School, very near to where Jack Clemo lived in the Clay Country area of Cornwall and will be working with students from the school to be a part of the album. This project has been made possible by funding from FEAST whose excellent organisation specialises in bringing arts and creativity into education and the wider community throughout Cornwall.
