FOLK festival favourites Jez Lowe and The Bad Pennies will be trading the big outdoor arena for an intimate indoor concert stage in north Derbyshire.

Jez and his band will be performing the songs and music of northern England when they headline Chesterfield Folk Club’s monthly show on Friday, May 13.

The singer/songwriter and his musicians have played around the globe, including America, Australia and Belgium as well as all over the UK.

Jez, who has been performing for more than 20 years, is renowned as a wordsmith. His songs have been recorded by the likes of Fairport Convention, The Dubliners and The Tannahill Weavers.

He has recorded more than a dozen solo albums and half a dozen albums with The Bad Pennies - so they will have plenty of material to choose from when they play in Chesterfield next week.

Support comes from David Gibb and Elly Lucas, finalists in the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards 2011.

The show at Club Chesterfield, off Chester Street, starts at 8pm.

Tickets cost £9; for further information, contact
