Kim Lowings and the Greenwood – 10th Feb

Inspired by the folk tradition, Kim Lowings and The Greenwood perform their songs with a contemporary twist. Their live shows are an energetic blend of original compositions and traditional songs. Kim Lowings, Andrew Lowings, Tim Rogers and Dave Sutherland bring together their multi-instrumental skill and individual experience resulting in an innovative and sensitive approach to arrangements. The motivation is to keep the tradition alive and to share their own tales.

Support – Joe Bayliss

“A prolific singer songwriter, combining soulful, poetic lyrics that grab your soul, with a, laid back, finger picking guitar style.
Based in Staffordshire but following the acoustic and folk festival scene throughout the country, Joe came to songwriting late in life but has since become an express train of lyrical output.

Calling on influences from John Martyn, Damien Rice and Tom Baxter, his music falls somewhere between the cracks of nu-folk and indie-folk for those, for whom a genre matters – It’s about the lyrical content and values, driven by simple but interestingly structured melodies”
