JEZ LOWE

Date: JULY 7 2022

We are very pleased to welcome back to the club one of our favourite performers

John Gerard “Jez” Lowe is an English folk singer-songwriter. Lowe was born and raised in County Durham, in a family with Irish roots. He is known primarily for his compositions dealing with daily life in North-East England, particularly in his hometown of Easington Colliery

REG MEUROSS

Date: SEPTEMBER 22 2022

The breadth and depth of Reg Meuross’s material is unparalleled in contemporary folk: songs about forgotten heroes, famous names, folk legends, the climate emergency, tales from the kitchen sink and news from the world stage; if something needs to be sung about then Reg Meuross has a song for it.

Reg has the gift of being able to touch people through his songs and performance, painting pictures that remain with the listener long after the song has been sung.

Masterfully accompanying himself on his ‘44 Martin six-string guitar, harmonica, tenor guitar, banjo and dulcimer and captivating audiences with his beautiful tenor voice, witnessing a Reg Meuross performance is to experience a journey into the heart, soul and songs of one of England’s finest writers.

“…assured a place in the pantheon of great folk songwriters.” The Living Tradition

“Classic, with echoes of early Dylan, Tom Paxton and Leonard Cohen” Guardian Music

“The remarkable singer-songwriter that is Reg Meuross” Sean Rafferty BBC Radio 3

“A mighty songwriter and an equally fine singer” Martin Carthy
