Jez Lowe (guitar, cittern, harmonica ) has long been one of the UK’s busiest folk performers, playing for audiences the world over. In 2006 Lowe contributed to the BBC Radio 2 'Radio Ballads' documentary series broadcast on Radio 2 as a homage to the original series of the same title pioneered by Ewan MacColl & Charles Parker in the 1950s &1960s. Jez Lowe was commissioned to write 22 new songs for the documentary-folk series. Over the last couple of decades, the likes of Fairport Convention, The Dubliners, The Unthanks, Wizz Jones, The McCalmans, Mary Black, Richard Thompson, The Duhks, Bob Fox, The Young Uns, Enda Kenny, Cherish The Ladies, Tom McConville, The Clancys ,to name a few, have performed & recorded his songs. Jez Lowe’s contributions to the on-going BBC Radio series The Radio Ballads has cemented this reputation, with a Sony Radio Award among the many accolades coming its way. The project culminated in a live BBC Radio 2 broadcast in November 2018 to commemorate The Great War Centenary that featured Jez alongside the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra & narrator Michael Morpurgo. As BBC Radio DJ Mike Harding said recently, “No-one else writes or sounds like Jez Lowe”, & chances are, even if you’ve never heard the man himself, you’ll have heard his songs, sung at festivals, club-gigs, open-mikes or on CD, by the great & good, the professional & the enthusiast, the young & not-so-young. What higher accolade could a songwriter hope for? Jez Lowe is one of our finest songwriters.” BBC Radio 2(www.jezlowe.com)
