Jez Lowe

Jez Lowe is respected as one of Britain's finest songwriters, strongly rooted in tradition. He weds a fine voice with some dazzling guitar work; although this is a solo tour of the U.S., he also performs with the rollicking band Bad Pennies.

Jez Lowe convincingly and lovingly translates the lives of Northern England working class folk into songs that are vivid, aching, and resiliently humorous. Few contemporary musicians create such catchy, timeless melodies and lyrics that ring true and clear. He also finds inspiration in poets such as Yeats and Heaney, in road travels, and in humanity that persists in times of terrorism and greed.

He's won the hearts of Old Songs audiences; this will be his Ithaca debut!

Tickets are available at Ludgate Farm Market, Ithaca Guitar Works, Greenstar Co-op, Autumn Leaves Bookstore, Bound for Glory, and at the door. You may also order tickets online.
