Jez Lowe's Friday Special

Jez Lowe's latest album
This Friday sees the return of Jez Lowe to the Bothy at a Friday Special. Jez is an Sony Academy Award Winning Songwriter from County Durham. Many of his songs deal with daily life in North East England, particularly in his home town of Easington Colliery. He is consequently seen as a something of a musical ambassador for the North East. In 2008, he was nominated as “Folksinger of the Year” in the BBC Folk awards, following the success of his album Jack Common's Anthem released the previous year. Jez is a highly regarded singer-songwriter and artists who have covered his songs include Fairport Convention, The Dubliners, The Tannahill Weavers, Cherish The Ladies, Gordon Bok, The McCalmans, The Black Brothers, Liam Clancy and Bob Fox.

Jez often performs with his band, the Bad Pennies, but for this gig he is performing solo. He will doubtlessly be performing material from his new CD, Heads Up, which is a retrospective featuring many of his most popular and most-requested songs. "Heads Up is a brilliant sampler" (Living Tradition review). Jez's special guests on the night are Peta Webb and Ken Hall, who have themselves headlined at the Bothy.

The gig is at 8.00pm this Friday 13 September at the Park Golf Club, Park Road West, Southport, PR9 0JS. The venue sells real ale from Thwaites. On-line tickets.
