St Petroc’s Sessions – Jim Causley, The Woodcarts & Drystones

intoBodmin launch the St Petroc’s Sessions at the inaugural Celebrate Bodmin Festival – SATURDAY 23rd SEPTEMBER 2017

As part of the Celebrate Bodmin Festival, Bodmin’s newest cultural organisation, intoBodmin and Devon-based promoters Cabaret Voltaire are delighted to launch the St Petrock’s Sessions, adding an evening of brilliant live music to the weekend’s events. The first Sessions features folk flavours, both home-grown to Bodmin, and from across the South West – there’s big names and the best emerging talent, with Jim Causley, The Woodcarts and The Drystones.

St. Petroc’s is delighted to welcome Jim Causley back to Cornwall, following a huge national tour of ‘I am the Song’ – his new album of Charles Causley’s poems for children. Jim is widely acclaimed; he was a winner at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards; he featured in The Telegraph top ten folk albums; and was called ‘The finest male folk singer of his generation’ by Mojo Magazine.

The Drystones are one of the most talked about new folk bands. Their upbeat music has earned them the Larmer Tree Breakthrough Music Award and a BBC Radio 2 Recommendation of the Day for Glastonbury Festival.”Their arrangements are at times bordering on breathtaking and are delivered with the enthusiasm, energy and undying self belief that belies their youth” Jon Earl, Songs From The Shed.

The Woodcarts are two Bodmin College students, sisters Martha and Rosa, with beautiful vocals and enchanting melodies that make them stand out as an act that’s going somewhere. “After being dazzled at the splendid Sing Along the River event in Lostwithiel, we simply had to invite the The Woodcarts to join the line-up” Fin Irwin, intoBodmin Director.

The St Petrock’s Sessions are a series of concerts offering a rare opportunity to enjoy entertainment in the beautiful setting of Cornwall’s second largest church, St Petrock’s in Bodmin, which dates from the 15th Century. With further concerts planned in January and May next year expect big-name headliners and a platform for local talent.
