A Concert in Memory of Julie Affleck
Come along to the Black Swan Folk Club for a concert in memory of Julie Affleck and in aid of St Leonard’s Hospice, held on Thursday 18th May from 8pm.
The concert features special guests Jez Lowe and Kate Bramley, supported by Ramshackle, Eddie Affleck and singers from the Black Swan Folk Club.
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 UK 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.
Kate is a fine singer and instrumentalist, best known as fiddler and vocalist for the North-east’s ‘Jez Lowe and the Bad Pennies’ and the American band ‘Sweetgrass’. It was while growing up in Cornwall that Kate starting singing around the local folk clubs with her father, and even though she went on to train as Theatre Writer and Director at Hull University she kept open her links to the folk world. In the early 90s she frequently performed in the USA with the four part a capella group, Northern Harmony, and some of her early songs were published in the book of the same name.
