Pleasance Cabaret Bar


"Folk and acoustic music is undoubtedly enjoying something of a renaissance at the moment, and County Durham singer-songwriter Jez Lowe is among those enjoying the benefits of this rebirth. He has a new album just out, his 14th set of original songs of the North Country, and the BBC's "Radio Ballads" - to which he contributed twenty-odd songs last year- has just won a Sony Radio Academy Award.

For the last twenty years, Jez has toured the world, building up a formidable reputation in the USA, Australia and Europe, and gaining the respect of his peers and his audience alike. Folk supremo Richard Thompson called him "the best songwriter to emerge from the UK in a long time", and his songs are among the most widely sung by folksingers and bands around the country's clubs and festivals. His new album is called JACK COMMON'S ANTHEM, and was inspired by the cult Geordie novelist of that name, who's work chronicled life in the North East in the early 20th Century. Jez Lowe has taken up that same torch a hundred years later, in a selection of songs and tunes that reflect the hard times, the good times, the hard work and hard play of the region where he was born and raised.

In December 2007 Jez was nominated for the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2008 as 'Folksinger of the Year', alongside Martin Simpson, Kate Rusby and Julie Fowlis."

'Lowe has earned the right to be counted among England's finest contemporary songwriters.'

Colin Randall- Daily Telegraph 2007

One of the best songwriters and singers. And a lovely man too.

Wish the Sunray could attract him. I love his music.

Make sure he does "London Danny"!! And you could ask for Aloysius- rarely heard live these days, but a great song.

enough!

E N J O Y !!!

He was at Wessex Acoustic last Friday evening, joining Kate Bramley for the last two or three numbers in both her sets. I was the support act and found it slightly un-nerving when he walked in.
