Steve Tilston and Jez Lowe
This event has already happened
Award-winning singer-songwriters Steve Tilston and Jez Lowe find inspiration in new duo…
First paired together whilst on tour in the USA a few years ago, Steve and Jez realised they could be onto something special. Some time passed before the two could reunite again, but the spark was lit and plans were afoot! Then in 2015 Tilston & Lowe embarked on their debut UK tour, sharing the stage and swapping songs… familiar songs made new again. The logical next step was to make a CD… And it should probably come as no surprise that when two of the UK’s finest songwriters go into the studio to record what was to be an album reflecting their live show, they come out instead with a whole record of brand new co-writes! The Janus Game is now released.
Steve Tilston and Jez Lowe, two of the UK acoustic/folk scene's finest songwriters join forces 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. Questions, answers, anecdotes and anarchy… a very special and entertaining evening of music.
Steve Tilston has been described as “a complete guitarist,” “a singer songwriter of rare talent” and “absurdly accomplished.”
Jez Lowe's 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.
