JEZ LOWE

Jez Lowe, best known for his songs describing the mining culture, society and people of his native Northeast England, is a busy performer in high demand, with annual tours to the United States and Canada and frequent tours to Australia and New Zealand.

Born to a coal mining family with Irish roots, Jez was raised and still lives in an area close to the English/Scottish border where coal mining was the dominant occupation.

He is Durham’s Composer in Residence and has often been commissioned to write songs that chronicle important events in the locale. These have included the closing of the coal mines; the last Big Meeting Day (a gala fair in the mining community); the beginning of the new millennium; and most recently the reclaiming of coastal land from pollution & mining residue.

He is a remarkable song-smith using wit, warmth, sensitivity, and keen perception, to paint colourful portraits of ordinary people with ordinary lives whom may be specific to Northeast England, but through Jez’s eyes and verse become universal characters.

His songs have been covered by The Fairport Convention, The Tanahill Weavers, The Black Family, The Dubliners, Gordon Bok, Cherish the Ladies, Bob Fox and a host of other acts in America, Canada, Australia and the UK.

He has recently released ’Honesty Box’, his 13th full length album which was ’one of the top ten albums of 2002’, BBC Radio 2 Folk show.

Most recently Jez hosted the high profile Three Nations Tour, an international touring collaboration with James Keelaghan (CAN) and Kristina Olsen (USA) that has taken UK audiences by storm in Nov 2003. Jez and the band were joined on stage by the guests all playing the full night together with stunning results.

THE BAD PENNIES:

Jez Lowe’s band, The Bad Pennies, have been one of the high points on the British and international folk scene for over a decade.

The current line-up have toured as far afield as the USA, Canada, and Australia in the last 18months, as well as a hectic gig and concert schedule in the UK, Holland, Switzerland and Austria.

On fiddle and vocals is Kate Bramley, from York. Kate is a member of the US folk/ bluegrass outfit Sweetgrass, and also has two solo recordings to her credit. She also runs her own theatre company from her base in Yorkshire.

Andy May from Gateshead on Tyne joined the band in 2002 playing Northumbrian Pipes, whistles, piano and accordion. Andy gives a delicious celtic twist to the band sound and has just released his debut album on Fellside records, which features none other than Kathryn Tickell, and is being well received across the country.

The newest addition to the band in May 2004 is Sean Taylor on fretless bass, percussion and backing vocals. From Northumberland, Sean is signed to Green Linnet Records with celtic band Cuig and has toured extensively with various projects, even for a time as Musical Director for the Drifters!

At the present time the band are touring a brand new CD, Doolally’ that is Jez Lowe’s 14th studio album. As well tours of the UK, the band will travel as far Australia, USA and Europe before 2005 is out.
