Talented young Devon singer Jim Causley will be appearing with friends Rosie Davis, and Julie and Gavin Atkin at the White Lion, in Tenterden’s picturesque High Street on the 22nd April 2011, starting at 8pm.

Jim’s a dynamic and engaging performer, with a great gift for telling the story of a song, and just happens to have one of the best baritone voices you’re likely to hear anywhere.

Rosie Davis is a highly respected musician and  singer with a beguiling mixture of British and American traditional songs, and also an outstanding dancer who will no doubt present both old fashioned Southern English stepdancing and Appalachian styles.

Julie and Gavin Atkin sing and play old fashioned and traditional songs and tunes. Gavin uses a concertina to accompany Julie’s singing of old popular songs, plays tunes on fiddle and melodeon, and does a bit of singing himself.
