Jez Lowe and The Bad Pennies will perform their show These Coaltown Days at Florence Nightingale Memorial Hall, Holloway, on Sunday, November 17.

The concert is to be the latest in the Live and Local season at the venue, offering you top quality shows and concerts right on your doorstep.

This will be 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 in the North East, many of his 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.

The show starts at 7.30pm and doors will open at 7pm at the Florence Memorial Nightingale Memorial Hall.
