It has just been announced that Jez Lowe is one of the four performers nominated for "Folk singer of the Year" at this year's BBC Folk Awards to be held later this month.
Don't miss the opportunity of seeing him perform live in informal surroundings of the Village Hall as part of the Haddenham Ceilidh's event on Saturday evening, 7th February.
We may not be able to afford him again!!
Jez has built an enviable reputation as a songwriter and performer in the world of acoustic music, and as a recognised musical ambassador for his native North East England, with almost twenty albums and countless live performances around the world over the last thirty years.
Among those who have recorded their own versions of Jez's songs, are Fairport Convention, The Unthanks, The Dubliners, The Tannahill Weavers, Cherish The Ladies, Gordon Bok, Tom McConville, The McCalmans, The Black Brothers, Liam Clancy, Bob Fox and literally hundreds of others.
Songs like Back in Durham Gaol, The Bergen, Greek Lightning and These Coal Town Days have generated scores of cover versions around the globe, and are now classics of their kind.
Doors open 7.15pm, dancing starts at a 8.00pm for the Ceilidh with Hugh Rippon and Peeping Tom.
The concert with JEZ starts at 8.50pm in the Walter Rose Room, but he will also do a floor spot in the main hall at 8.40pm.
Admission to the venue, £11, lets you dance or enjoy the concert or perhaps a bit of both! If you are concerned about gaining admission on the evening, just email John Heydon and he can reserve tickets for you on the door.
