Kimber’s Men are the best four-man harmony group in England. Apart from regular festival appearances all over Europe, they recently starred in the BBC production of Sea Songs with Gareth Malone. John Bromley is probably the finest bass singer on the British folk scene today, and Neil Kimber, Gareth Scott and Steve Smith add accomplished guitars as well as spine-tingling harmonies.
Jez Lowe is a singer-songwriter who was born and raised in County Durham. In over 30 years he has recorded more than 20 CDs, either solo or with his group The Bad Pennies. He plays guitar and cittern and has been a contributor to the Radio Ballads and the Ballads of Child Migration.
He has performed at our club in 2013 and 2015 and we’ve been lucky that he could fit in some solo gigs following his farewell tour with the Pitmen Poets.
He has also just published his second novel, “The Corly Crows” which will be on sale at the club along with a selection of his CDs.
