The 2013-2014 Concert Series presents...

James Keelaghan & Jez Lowe

Sunday, October 6, 2013
Concert 7:30 pm
at Midtown Scholar

Two superlative singer-songwriters, together for an amazing evening!

James Keelaghan, called "Canada's finest singer-songwriter" and the "poet laureate of the folk and roots music world", is one of the most distinctive and readily identifiable voices on both the Canadian and international singer-songwriter scenes. His masterful story-telling has been part of the bedrock of his success, earning him a Juno (Canada's Grammy) and accolades from Australia to Scandinavia. He loves language and history, a subject in which he earned a degree; he is a skilled thespian, which explains his ability to make an immediate connection with a live audience; and he has an ear for memorable melodies and harmonies that make those melodies glisten.

Jez Lowe is one of the busiest performers on the acoustic/folk scene. Accompanying himself on guitar, cittern, madolin and harmonica, he has brought his "pointed, poignant and powerful" songs of life in his native northeast England to audiences worldwide. Performing solo and with the Bad Pennies, he has played at some of the most prestigious venues in the world. Jez's songs have also found their way around the globe all on their own, borne by performers including Cherish the Ladies, the Tannahill Weavers, the Black Family, Fairport Convention, The Clancys, The Dubliners and literally hundreds more. BBC Radio 2 has called him "one of our finest songwriters," echoing his 2008 nomination for "Folksinger of the Year" in the BBC Folk awards.
