  ▼ show all details  ▲ hide all details

A specially commissioned project by Bodmin Moor Poetry Festival; Jim Causley has collaborated with author Luke Thompson to make an album of poems by Cornish poet Jack Clemo as part his 2016 centenary celebrations. Clemo—a close friend of Charles Causley—was a fascinating poet who lived in the evocative Clay Country district of mid Cornwall and was greatly inspired by that dramatic, man-made landscape. Often described as angular, his poems couldn't be more different from that of his Launceston friend and that is paralled in these new musical settings. Recorded in his home village, this project features some of the finest musicians in the Duchy and brings to life the clayscape world of Clemo.
