Last night to the Anvil to see Mawkin.Causley. A group of youngsters from the youth folk movement that grows out of Sidmouth folk festival. Their individual musicianship (although the 6 string bassist was pretty good) is not out of the top drawer but together they aren't half bad and their arrangements are excellent. Mainly foot stamping, dancing, English, folk music, but flavoured with modern techniques and sounds. Jim Causley has a good voice for this stuff, if the rest of his act can be a little too camp, and he isn't afraid to sing it like it is (or should that be was) as shown by his unbowdlerised rendering of the Cutty Wren.

A good evening of music showing that the tradition is alive and well in at least some young people's hearts.
