JEZ LOWE

Not only is Jez one of the busiest live performers in the country, but his songs are among the most widely sung by other performers. Jez first played the Stanford in the Vale Folk Festival in 1990 and has remained a firm favourite ever since. In 2015 he was nominated in the Radio 2 Folk Awards for best singer and best new song. Jez has been involved in various songwriting and collaborating projects and his involvement in the award-winning BBC series The Radio Ballads continues, with his song The Wrong Bus singled out for inclusion on Radio 4’s Pick of the Year. Jez shows no sign of slowing down, with tours of America, Holland, Australia and Canada lined up over the next twelve months as well as numerous UK dates. As well as a supreme talent as both a singer and a songwriter, Jez is one of the nicest artists we have had the pleasure of engaging and we are delighted he will be performing for us this year.
