Jez Lowe, 3 March

Jez LoweJez Lowe: In Concert

One of the finest singer-songwriters joins us of the UK leg of his tour of Canada, Australia and Europe.A double nomination in the 2015 BBC Folk Awards – for best singer and best new song – was a timely reminder of Jez Lowe’s standing in the UK folk and acoustic music scene. Not only he is one of the busiest live performers in the country, but his songs are among the most widely sung by other performers, whether by long-established acts like Fairport Convention, The Dubliners and Bob Fox, or by the new breed of stars like The Unthanks, The Young Uns and The Duhks.

His involvement in the award-winning BBC series The Radio Ballads continues, with his song The Wrong Bus singled out for inclusion on Radio 4’s Pick of the Year last December. The song is also featured on his latest album, The Ballad Beyond, the success of which prompted a feature in fRoots magazine and glowing reviews the world over.

High Tor Players

Alan Ayckbourn’s comic mastery is brought to the stage by the High Tor Players with the acclaimed comedy ‘Absent Friends’

‘Colin must be comforted in his grief over the death of his fiancee so his friends- who never met the girl- arrange a tea party for him. Understandably they are on edge wondering what to say, but there is more to their unease: Diane and Paul, John and Evelyn, and Marge are all kept together by a mixture of business and cross-marital emotional ties.’   How will all this pan out?  Come to the Town Hall to find out.
