A double nomination in the 2015 BBC Folk Awards – for best singer and best new song – was a timely reminder of Jez Lowe’s standing in the UK folk and acoustic music scene. Not only he is one of the busiest live performers in the country, but his songs are among the most widely sung by other performers, such as Fairport Convention, The Dubliners The Unthanks, and The Young Uns
“Jez has been an essential part of the UK Folk Scene for many years, and his popularity is ensured. His songs are sung wherever folk song enthusiasts gather across the World, and his recordings and song books are treasured by many. One of his strengths is his ability to write genuinely good lyrics and tunes, on a wide range of subject both serious and humorous. His presence on stage, whether in a marquee concert, or a small folk club, is immediate and engaging.” (Sidmouth Folk Festival)
Jez shows no sign of slowing down, with tours of America, Holland, Australia and Canada lined up over the next twelve months, alongside an enviable list of UK dates.
