JEZ LOWE’S ‘A SONG FOR GEORDIE’ – ON TOUR NOVEMBER 2007


A HUNDRED YEARS OF NORTH-EASTERN LIFE IN WORDS, MUSIC AND PICTURES

Durham singer and songwriter Jez Lowe has spent the last two decades taking his songs of his native region around the folk festivals and concert halls of Britain and beyond. Now he is embarking on a concert tour of Northern Britain that he feels will vividly bring to life his favourite local songs, as well his own compositions, for audiences of all ages, tastes and accents.

Aided by a six-piece troop of fellow musicians and singers, plus exclusive visual backdrops of local film and fine artwork, Jez has drawn together a ninety minute presentation based loosely on the successful series A SONG FOR GEORDIE, that he wrote and presented for BBC Radio Two in 2001. His recent role in the Sony Radio Award-winning RADIO BALLADS series, also for Radio Two, and for which he wrote over twenty new songs, has inspired him to compile a montage of the familiar and obscure ballads from the industrial, rural and urban North East, of yesterday and today. And it’s all delivered in that much-envied Geordie style of humour, sensitivity and raucous bonhomie.
