Jim Moray is one of the most consistently inventive musicians working in traditional folk music today.

He will be appearing at the next Jurassic Folk event, on Wednesday, November 7.

He has found himself at the forefront of a new folk revival in the UK, and hailed as a pivotal influence by a new generation of folk musicians.

Recording his first album Sweet England while still studying classical composition at Birmingham Conservatoire in the day and playing drums in power-pop bands by night, Jim Moray emerged on to the UK folk scene seemingly fully formed in 2003.

Followng success with his first four albums, he now comes bearing Skulk (2012), his fifth and considered perhaps best album yet, with the wherewithal to locate folk music in its rightful landscape: the modern world.

It all happens at 8.15pm at the Grove, Seaton, on Wednesday, November 7.

Advance tickets cost £6 from www.eastdevonfolk.org or phone 01297 20064.
