Badapple Theatre – Jez Lowe – These Coal Town Days

Fearby & Healey Village Hall, Fearby, Ripon HG4 4NF

An upbeat night of humour and song from award-winning Radio 2 songwriter Jez Lowe and his celtic- style band The Bad Pennies. Jez Lowe is widely regarded as one of the best narrative songwriters in the UK, and he has written extensively for the BBC Radio 2 ‘Radio Ballads’ series, that won two SONY Radio Academy Awards. Originally from Easington Colliery, many of his own songs have told the tale of the rise and fall of the colliery towns and villages, and the characters and community spirit that kept the wheels turning. Known for his witty, comic folk songs as well as lyrical ballads, expect an entertaining night, with stunning musicianship from this four piece band as they take you on a journey through the best of Jez’s coal-songs new and old from ‘The Ex-Pitman’s Pot Holing Pub Quiz Team’, to the strike inspired ‘Judas Bus’, and well known classics ‘Black Diamonds’ and ‘These Coal Town Days’ that have been performed by musicians the world over.
