Jez Lowe makes his first visit to the Caltech stage
By John Sollenberger 10/11/2012
The Caltech Folk Music Society season rolls along with a performance Saturday night by singer/songwriter and guitarist Jez Lowe.
Lowe visits Pasadena all the way from the north of England. This will be his first visit to the Caltech stage, and the world-traveling troubadour has been eagerly anticipated by the Society.
He’s recorded more than a dozen albums and played countless gigs worldwide over a 20-odd year career. Besides an impressive solo career, he’s been a fixture in the band the Bad Pennies. He’s performed at festivals in far-flung locales like Canada, Denmark, Australia, Hong Kong, Ireland, New Zealand, Germany and Spain.
Lowe earned a nomination for “Folk Singer of the Year” by the BBC in 2008.
Besides making his own mark in the world of acoustic music, his songs have been recorded by Fairport Convention, The Dubliners, The Tannahill Weavers and literally dozens of other artists.
