For update, see post of 30 October.
Singer songwriter Jez Lowe makes a welcome return to Southport after a long period of absence. He is especially noted for his songs about life in his native North East England, many of which have been recorded by other artists. Some of his songs are regarded as folk classics, such as "Last of the Widows", written to mark the death of the last of the many widows created by the Easington Colliery disaster. There are 13 albums on sale on his website, and I know that is an incomplete list.
Jez is currently completing a tour of North America, but will be back in Blighty in time for a solo gig in Southport on 2 November. It's at a Friday Special at the Bothy Folk Club, Park Golf Club, Park Road West, Southport, PR9 0JS. You can get tickets on-line, anf the venue sells Thwaites real ale. 8.00 p.m. is the start time.
