Described by Mike Harding as “two of our best songwriters and singers, understanding and enriching each other’s songs” and by Mark Radcliffe as a “top-class pair of songwriters”, two of the UK folk scene’s finest singer-songwriters Steve Tilston & Jez Lowe join forces for a series of concerts filled with songs and music.
Jez Lowe received a double nomination in the 2015 BBC Folk Awards for Best Singer and Best New Song, a timely reminder of Jez’s standing in the UK folk and acoustic music scene. He also tours with his band The Bad Pennies and with The Pitmen Poets and is a principal writer on the award-winning BBC Radio Ballads.
Steve Tilston has been described as “a complete guitarist” and “a singer songwriter of rare talent”. He’s won a BBC Folk Award for Best Original Song, and is the inspiration for the Hollywood movie Danny Collins starring Al Pacino!
“a master-class in song-writing from two of the folk world’s finest.” The Living Tradition
