Jez Lowe (UK) comes to Humph Hall
3pm, Sunday 9th October 2016

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, whether by long-established acts like Fairport Convention, The Dubliners and Bob Fox, or by the new breed of stars like The Unthanks, The Young Uns and The Duhks.

This year is seeing him in front of audiences right across the UK, as well as in Canada, Australia, Spain and Denmark.

It took the release of the compilation CD entitled “HEADS UP – 18 Essential Jez Lowe Songs”, in 2012 for the acoustic/folk world to be jolted into realising that this North East of England-based singer-songwriter is rapidly gaining ground as the most 'covered' songwriter on the UK circuit.

No wonder no less than Richard Thompson has called him “The best singer songwriter to come out of the UK for a long time”, and personally invited him to play at Thompson’s Meltdown Festival at London’s South Bank Centre in 2010.
