Steve Tilston and Jez Lowe
Steve Tilston and Jez Lowe, two of the UK Acoustic/Folk scene’s finest songwriters join forces for a series of concerts filled with songs and music, chat and banter and intimate insights into their approach to their craft.
Head to head, neck and neck (guitar necks, that is!) listen in as they rekindle the spontaneity of their late-night living-room song swaps.
Questions, answers, anecdotes and anarchy… and a very special evening of music.
Jez Lowe a double nomination in the 2015 BBC Folk Awards – best singer and best new song, was 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 series The Radio Ballads. He’s one of the busiest live performers in the country and his songs are among the most widely sung by others.
Steve Tilston has been described as “a complete guitarist,” “a singer songwriter of rare talent” and “absurdly accomplished.” He’s toured with John Renbourn’s Ship of Fools, traditional singer Maggie Boyle, with Martin Allcock and Pete Zorn as WAZ!, Ballet Rambert, and with daughter Martha. He’s the writer of the classics The Slipjigs and Reels, The Naked Highwayman and Here’s to Tom Paine and his songs have been covered by a who’s who of the folk scene. He’s won a BBC Folk Award, best original song, appeared on Later with Jools Holland and BBC4 Songwriters Circle and is the inspiration for the Hollywood movie Danny Collins starring Al Pacino!He’s also published a novel.
