Jez Lowe and the Bad Pennies

Get yer Skates On

Sunday 3 Dec 2023 at 7:30 PM

Award winning songwriter Jez Lowe returns with his toe-tapping folk music quartet The Bad Pennies for a night of good-humoured seasonal music and stories from North-East England. They are a full sounding folk music band who have been playing their songs and music of Northern England for a decade and a half around the folk festivals, clubs and concert stages of the world.

“Acoustic simplicity coupled with electric vitality” was how they were described in their early days, and with half a dozen albums to their credit, along with solo albums by Jez and by other members of the group, their following has continued to increase.

Strong harmonic vocals, backed by outstanding instrumental back-up on guitar, cittern, fiddle, fretless bass, keyboards and Northumbrian Pipes, have made them one of Britain’s top attractions on the folk/acoustic/celtic circuit.

The 'Get Yer Skates On' tour takes in a whistle stop tour of the music and traditions of County Durham, Tyneside and Northumberland with Jez Lowe's trademark songwriting artistry and a good dose of laughs along the way.

Jez Lowe’s standing in the UK folk and acoustic music scene means not only he is one of the busiest live performers in the country who has been added to the line-up of this year’s Folk East Festival, but his songs are among the most widely sung by other performers, whether by long-established acts like Fairport Convention, The Dubliners and Bob Fox, or by the new breed of stars like The Unthanks, The Young Uns, Megson and The Duhks.

This is a show that appeals to all ages, community and music audiences alike, with the added bonus of attracting audiences from outside of the village due to Jez Lowe's years of touring experience and media profile.
