A Call for the North Country
For the last twenty-five years, Jez has toured the world, building up a formidable
reputation in the USA, Australia and Europe, and gaining the respect of his
peers and his audience alike. Folk supremo Richard Thompson called him “the best
songwriter to emerge from the UK in a long time”, and his songs are among the
most widely sung by folksingers and bands around the country’s clubs and
His last album WOTCHEOR has been kicking up a storm on the UK scene.
His current studio disc that pays homage to the traditions and stories of North-East life ‘Wotcheor’ has received a brace of rave reviews from print and radio reviewers alike. And his penultimate live CD NORTHERN ECHOES has won album of the year in the US as part of the Indie Acoustic Project Awards.
This year he is touring with fiddler, songwriter and singer Kate Bramley who is fast
earning her own reputation on the UK folk scene following her debut solo CD
‘Little Canaan’. Described as ‘the impressive Kate Bramley’ by the national
newspaper The Daily Telegraph Kate is steeped in the musical traditions of both
the UK and America. Through her collaborations with US based band Sweetgrass as
well as Jez Lowe’s Bad Pennies she has created an original repertoire of
traditional and original songs and tunes that have made her one of the most
