Music and banter galore

Two of the UK acoustic/folk scene’s finest songwriters join forces at Etal Village Hall on April 8.

Steve Tilston and Jez Lowe unite for a series of concerts filled with songs and music, chat and banter and intimate insights into their approach to their craft.

Head to head, neck and neck (guitar necks, that is!) listen in as they rekindle the spontaneity of their late-night living-room song swaps.

There will be questions, answers, anecdotes and anarchy...and a very special evening of music.

Jez Lowe, a double nomination in the 2015 BBC Folk Awards - best singer and best new song, was a timely reminder of Jez’s standing in the UK folk and acoustic music scene. He also tours with his band The Bad Pennies and with The Pitmen Poets and is a principal writer on the award-winning BBC series The Radio Ballads.

Steve Tilston has been described as “a complete guitarist,” “a singer songwriter of rare talent” and “absurdly accomplished.” He’s toured with John Renbourn’s Ship of Fools, traditional singer Maggie Boyle, with Martin Allcock and Pete Zorn as WAZ!

He’s won a BBC Folk Award for best original song, appeared on Later with Jools Holland and is the inspiration for the Hollywood movie Danny Collins starring Al Pacino.
