Jez is slowly getting around to including songs from the new album “The Dillen Doll” in his concert repertoire – see the sneak-pic below and try to guess which one got its live debut in Bristol last Friday night… The album itself is listed on Amazon as having an official release date as March 5th 2018! Meanwhile, Jez’s debut novel of the same name is set to appear on Amazon this week. Both of course are readily available from this very website… Two new Steve Tilston/Jez Lowe gigs have just been announced – at The Trades Club, Hebden Bridge on March 14th, with Chris Parkinson and Hugh Bradley as the Tilston Lowe Sometimes, and then Jez and Steve return for the third year running to Edinburgh Fringe Festival on August 22nd. Venue details still to be confirmed… Looking even further ahead, The Bad Pennies Christmas Tour will be back on the road throughout December, and once again there’ll be two shows, afternoon and evening, at Gateshead’s Sage on December 28th, which is a Friday. The full itinerary for the Christmas Tour will be announced shortly… Jez will also be part of the line-up for a series of concerts based around The Ballad Of Child Migration album, as featured at last year’s BBC Folk Awards. These shows are being mooted for November across the UK… Jez returned to The Davy Lamp in Washington last week, a full eighteen years since The Bad Pennies recorded their double live album there. Jez included a few of the songs from that album in his set on Saturday, and also spent time with his old friend Tom McConville who was in the audience… Speaking of The Bad Pennies, the band have a solitary gig coming up, at Lowdham Village Hall on February 16th. Like Jez, all of the other members of the band will be busy with their other projects for most of this year.
