Jez Lowe remains at the helm, constantly updating the band’s repertoire with new compositions or new arrangements of numbers from the vast repertoire of original songs that have made him one of the most “covered” and widely-sung folk song writers of his generation. The band’s concerts are renowned for the sheer enjoyment generated, both on-stage and in the audience, from an instrumental and vocal line-up that is unlike any other on the UK scene – small-pipes, electric bass, cittern, piano, five-string fiddle, vocal harmonies and duet singing.
