Chenango Sessions Ep. 71: Jez Lowe

The great British songwriter Jez Lowe released his first album in 1980, and has been touring and performing throughout the world ever since. Besides his solo career, Jez is known for his work with the bands, the Bad Pennies, the Pitmen Poets, the Broonzies, Men at Words, and also for his longtime collaboration with the BBC series, the Radio Ballads. This week on the Chenango Sessions, we revisit Jez’s September, 2019, performance at Binghamton’s Cranberry Coffeehouse.

Funding for the Chenango Sessions is provided in part by a Project Grant from the Broome County Arts Council‘s United Cultural Fund.
