Fall tour announced
The release of the BIRD’S NEST will take place at the world famous Cologne Philharmonic Orchestra Hall, Kölner Philharmonie, on October 3, 2016. It is fitting that this release will take place in a world-class venue synonymous with presenting classical music and cross-genre music styles, two worlds The Fretless aims to bring closer together.
A double nomination in the 2015 BBC Folk Awards – for best singer and best new song – was a timely reminder of Jez Lowe’s standing in the folk and acoustic music scene. Not only he is one of the busiest live performers in the country, but his songs are among the most widely sung by other performers, whether by long-established acts like Fairport Convention, The Dubliners and Bob Fox, or by the new breed of stars like The Unthanks, The Young Uns and The Duhks.
These youngsters have enough All Ireland’s to paper their walls. Talent, talent, talent. Northern Ireland produces an amazing band with Connla.
