Welcome to the first LowpBlog. Lowp are a traditional/folk band based on Tyneside in the North East of England. Our members come from Jarrow, South Shields & Newcastle, and we play dance music and songs rooted in the native traditions of Northumberland and Tyneside, but also from Ireland, Scotland and Europe if we are feeling adventurous.
Ben Hudson: vocals, guitar & bouzouki
Stephen Pratt: flute & whistles
Peter Brown: fiddle
Iain Gelston: border pipes, bouzouki & mandolin
Sheena McCaffrey: accordion
