Jez Lowe is the latest act to perform at the town’s The Roots Music Club.

A club spokesman said: “A double nomination in the 2015 BBC Folk Awards – for best singer and best new song – was a timely reminder of Jez’s standing in the UK folk and acoustic music scene.

“Not only is he 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.

“Jez’s own long-established band The Bad Pennies continue to attract a huge following, and his other collaborations with The Pitmen Poets, The Broonzies and Men at Words, as well as with fellow songwriter Steve Tilston, how a willingness to push boundaries and venture boldly into pastures new.”

Jez plays The Roots Music Club tomorrow, Friday, April 1, in the alternate venue of Doncaster Brewery Tap on Young Street in the town centre.

Support comes from Blind River Scare, the “vehicle for the original Americana/alt country songs of South Wales- based singer/songwriter/guitarist Tim Manning”.

Tickets for Jez Lowe at The Roots Music Club are £10 on the door, or £8 in advance from
