Cauld Feet Again, Pet!

A former BBC Folk Singer of the Year and winner of two Sony Radio Academy Awards, Jez Lowe has built an enviable reputation as a songwriter and performer of witty, comic folk songs as well as lyrical ballads. He is recognised as a musical ambassador for his native North East England, with more than a dozen albums and countless live performances around the world over the last twenty years.

Last year we welcomed Jez Lowe and his multitalented band, The Bad Pennies, to Hollingwood Hub for the first time. This year we’re pleased to bring them back with a special guest - Geordie folk balladeer and actor, Benny Graham - performing a unique take on Christmas in the North. Part folk concert, part music hall revue - there’s songs, music and bags of fun for everyone.

"One of my favourite bands" Mike Harding BBC Radio 2

The Churchfitters are a folk band like no other. A double bass made out of a saucepan. Heart-wrenching vocals accompanied by a musical saw. Foot-stompingly fast fiddle meets funk-rock rhythms. And traditional tunes reinvigorated with mesmerising jazz sax. An evening in their company is an uplifting experience that sends everyone home happy.

The three virtuoso musicians from England and France strut their stuff on a stage that overflows with instruments - adding flute, banjo, dulcimer, tin whistle, guitar, ukulele, electric hub-cap bass-bouzouki and a sackful of percussion to their ensemble. And let’s not forget the unique ‘bing-bong’ machine made out of hack-saw blades.

Throw in some exquisite harmonies, original songs and a few jokes that create instant rapport and you’ve got a high energy show that often gets people dancing and always leaves audiences cheering.
