Steve Tilston & Jez Lowe

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… and a very special evening of music.

A masterclass in songwriting and a perfectly formed songwriters event tailor-made for any musical programme!
