Songs of Dartmoor – Jim Causley & Friends.

Here at long last; Jim’s first album of exclusively Dartmoor songs. From ancient traditional ballads collected by the Reverend Sabine Baring-Gould to Music Hall ditties, Devonshire Dialect pieces and wartime songs right up to modern ballads composed by present-day songsmiths living on the moor. This album re-visits some well loved favourites as well as some lesser-known material and some brand new recordings. Songs of Dartmoor also features many collaborations with local artists and several surprise guest appearances! This album is a musical ‘tour of the moor’ which gives a fascinating insight into the rich folk culture of this very unique region of Britain.
