Unfortunately, Lowri Evans is unable to appear at TwickFolk on this date.
Lowri Evans, hails from Newport. With a degree in jazz and pop, she has released albums in English and her native Welsh and appeared at Cambridge Folk Festival, Village Pump Folk and Celtic Connections, and had support slots with Cara Dillon, Martin Simpson, John Renbourn, Jim Moray, Jez Lowe and Richie Havens.
When Lowri played TwickFolk in October 2014, she’d recently released her latest Welsh language EP Gadael y gorffennol (Leaving the past). This February she released an English language album: Everyone is From Somewhere Else.
Lowri’s previous album – Corner of my Eye featured accordion player Andy Cutting and renowned acoustic and slide guitarist Martin Simpson, both BBC Radio 2 Folk Award Winners. The album has received fantastic reviews with a 5* review from Rock ‘n’ Reel (R2) quoting – “Lowri Evans has surely cut one of the albums of this or any other year. It’s simply a dream”
Lowri will once more be accompanied at TwickFolk by Lee Mason, as featured in our two videos from their last visit.
You may have seen Jenni Gould and Richard Carter playing floor spots at TwickFolk this year. We didn’t wait long to give them a support slot, and this felt like a great match! Jenni’s songs have often been compared to those of Carole King and Joni Mitchell, combining folk, jazz, blues, country and more than a little hint of rock n roll, with raw emotional lyrics. With this classically trained pianist with strong theatrical leanings, every song is a story.
