The new calendar year will open for Folk At Home on Saturday 9 February 2019. As an organization, we are very pleased and proud that the well-known English singer/songwriter Jez Lowe will be performing in our living room again on that date. Jez Lowe is a North English folk artist, who topped our list of "who we would like to have again"! We have seen him perform live a few times and know that he guarantees an evening of beautiful, but also humorous and playful music and stories.
In 2015, Jez was nominated in two categories for the BBC Folk Awards; many of his songs are covered by other artists, for example by Fairport Convention and The Dubliners; he has written for the BBC the music for documentaries about the life of the miners in the north of England and the closing of the mines there and for the award-winning BBC 2 series The Radio Ballads he still composes. Jez writes about everything that concerns him: the already mentioned miners life, but also social situations, relationships with and between people of all kinds, daily life and reflections on that life. He is one of the most booked artists of the UK.
Also in the coming calendar year he has been scheduled tours through America, Australia, Canada and therefore the Netherlands! Although Jez regularly performs tours and concerts with his band The Bad Pennies, he will perform solo in the Netherlands. Jez plays often and likes acoustic and accompanies himself (left-handed) on guitar, mandolin, ukulele, harmonica and banjo.
