Kiss away your Christmas cares with festive songs new and old from the pen of BBC Folk Awards 2015 Nominee Jez Lowe.
Jez Lowe and The Bad Pennies have been playing their songs and music of Northern England for a decade and a half around the folk festivals, clubs and concert stages of the world. “Acoustic simplicity coupled with electric vitality” was how they were described in their early days, and with half a dozen albums to their credit, along with solo albums by Jez and by other members of the group, their following has continued to increase.
For the past six years, Jez Lowe has been selling out venues across the country with an annual Christmas show. With his multi-talented band The Bad Pennies, (featuring fiddle, Northumbrian pipes, keyboards, guitar, bass and voices) plus special guest, folk balladeer and actor Benny Graham, Jez has put together a unique take on Christmas in the North.
Part folk concert, part music-hall revue, with songs, humour and music done the way only Geordies know how, but with plenty of attraction for audiences further south, as sell-out crowds and return performances from Surrey to Northumberland can testify.
“Jez Lowe is one of our finest songwriters.” BBC RADIO 2
