Dumnonia by Jim Causley

Summary

The album will include accompaniments from members of The Dartmoor Pixie Band, Nick Wyke and Becki Driscoll as well as Jeff Gillett.

The kingdom of Dumnonia was the ancient home of the Dumnonii, the Celtic tribal people who lived in this part of the South West peninsula before, during and after the period when the Romans popped by to visit for a chilly winter holiday. It is where the modern county of Devon derives its name and a large chunk of its cultural identity.
This album is an expression of Devonshireness as I feel it; with people who were around me at the time, no border checkpoints, nobody pushed out, just what it is.
