A double nomination in the 2015 BBC Folk Awards – for best singer and best new song – is 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 others.
Lowe’s long-established band The Bad Pennies (with Kate Bramley, Andy May and David De La Haye) continue to attract a huge following, and his other collaborations show a willingness to push boundaries and venture boldly into pastures new.
Lowe’s in Australia from the UK on a lightning tour, so the Braidwood Folk Music Club is tremendously lucky to be able to grab him for a night. He's visited several times over the years and it's always been a magic session whenever he rolls into town. This one will be no exception.
