Friday 15th June 2018 - FLAWLESS CARBON - at The Sun Inn

8.45


A unique blend of British and American Blues Rock. A hard-hitting, energetic Blues band from Kent, UK.
Formed in late 2013, long-term friends Lauren, Rob and Ben brought to bear the foundations for Flawless Carbon. Joined by Rich and Dan shortly after, the Flawless Carbon sound quickly took shape.

Variety is the spice of life, and FC have it in abundance. Blues, Folk, R'n'B and Pop play a large part in the background of FC's sound and history. Fused with influences from John Mayer, Joe Bonamassa, Maroon 5 and Black Stone Cherry, FC's unique take on British Blues Rock has them standing out of the crowd.

Currently working the local circuit around the South East of England, Flawless Carbon are quickly gathering attention from the UK Music industry. Their first EP is expected in late Summer 2014, with tours lining up for early 2015.

Power, Passion and Performance. You'll want to see them live.

Wednesday 20th June 2018 - JEZ LOWE - at Faversham Folk Club, The Limes

FAVERSHAM FOLK CLUB
Jez Lowe
7.30      Ticket Price £9 / £10


Jez Lowe strides through his third decade as a song-writing troubadour, on the back of a new and much acclaimed album – his nineteenth – entitled THE BALLAD BEYOND.
The year ahead will see him in front of audiences right across the UK, as well as in Canada, America, Spain and Holland, not only solo or with his long-standing backing band Bad Pennies, but in new musical company, on new musical journeys.
It took the release of the compilation CD entitled “HEADS UP – 18 Essential Jez Lowe Songs”, in 2012 for the acoustic/folk world to be jolted into realising that this North East of England-based singer-songwriter is rapidly gaining ground as the most “covered” songwriter on the UK circuit. Over the last couple of decades, the likes of Fairport Convention, The Dubliners, The Unthanks, Wizz Jones, The McCalmans, Mary Black, The Duhks, Bob Fox, The Young Un’s, Enda Kenny, Cherish The Ladies, Tom McConville, The Clancys and scores more, have queued up to adopt his songs for their own repertoires. No wonder no less than Richard Thompson has called him “The best singer songwriter to come out of the UK for a long time”, and personally invited him to play at Thompson’s Meltdown Festival at London’s South Bank Centre in 2010.
Jez Lowe’s contributions to the on-going BBC series The Radio Ballads has cemented this reputation, with a Sony Radio Award among the many accolades coming its way. Half of the fifteen songs on the new album THE BALLAD BEYOND are Radio Ballads songs recorded by their composer for the first time, revealing not only the breadth of the radio series itself, but also that of the writing and subject matter that Jez has striven to reach.
