Engaging performer and songwriter with a sweet sense of humour
Jez is nominated for two BBC Folk Awards – to be announced on April 22 – singer of the year and best original song. We’ll know the results by the time he visits and we wish him luck. But win or lose, his song “The Pitmen Poets” will sound just as good when Jez brings his easy north-east magnetism to our stage. He’s a polished and moving songwriter, with beguiling stories and an easy, relaxed singing and playing style.
