WITH a fistful of outstanding reviews, Jez Lowe returns to the spotlight at the Song Loft for the Stony Live! Festival this week.
For the last 30 years, singer and songwriter Jez has taken his songs of life in his native North East England to audiences around the globe.
Performing both solo and with his band The Bad Pennies, as well as in a variety of collaborative and commissioned musical enterprises, Jez is one of the most popular acoustic/folk artists of today.
His latest album - ‘Wotcheor!’ – is his 15th and has created renewed interest in his brand of poignant and powerful musical offerings.
Over the last five years alone, Jez has been nominated Folksinger of the Year in the BBC Folk Awards and won Album of the Year in the US-based Indie-Acoustic Awards.
Catch Jez tomorrow at 8.15pm.
Tickets £10 in advance, £12 on the door.
