Jez Lowe

About Jez Lowe

CHERRY BURTON ARTS welcome JEZ LOWE who will perform at The Village Hall, Cherry Burton nr Beverley on SATURDAY 28 May at 8pm, supported by Sam Martyn & Wolfy O’Hare.
Jez Lowe has long been one of the UK’s busiest folk performers, playing for audiences the world over, either solo, (with guitar, cittern and harmonica accompaniment), or with his band The Bad Pennies. As part of The Pitmen Poets (with Bob Fox, Benny Graham and Billy Mitchell), Jez has helped to rekindle the fire in the tradition of mining songs and culture of his native region in a series of sell out theatre performances around the UK.

Over the last couple of decades, the likes of Fairport Convention, The Dubliners, The Unthanks, Wizz Jones, The McCalmans, Mary Black, The Duhks, Bob Fox, The Young Uns, and scores more, have queued up to adopt his songs for their own repertoires. 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.

Jez Lowe’s contributions to the on-going BBC Radio series The Radio Ballads has cemented this reputation, with a Sony Radio Award among the many accolades coming its way. The project culminated in a live BBC Radio 2 broadcast In November 2018 to commemorate The Great War Centenary that featured Jez alongside the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and narrator Michael Morpurgo. Cherry Burton Arts organiser Martin Peirson added “ Jez is a stunning songwriter, who can tug at heartstrings one minute, then have you laughing with clever lyrics the next – a true wordsmith and great musician too.”

Supporting Jez are popular local performers Sam Martyn & Wolfy O’Hare as a newly formed duo. Sam’s soulful singing perfectly matches some great musical arrangements.

Tickets (£15) are available in advance from, Costcutter Cherry Burton, and Minster Records in Beverley.
Attenders should bring their own drinks & glasses.
