Lowp took the reigns once again at South Shields Folk Club on Sept 4th 2011. With a new set of songs and tunes, alongside old classics like Johnny Miner, the Westoe Rugby club was rocked by the hammering strings, driving accordion & flute, sublime fiddle and stirring pipes that have become their trademark sound.
The audience joined with the hauntingly slow version of the sea shanty Bold Riley, and the rip-roaring version of Madam I’m A Darling almost brought the house down. The Lowp mix of light and heavy, great songs and ranting tunes was again a great success at the club and the band can’t wait to play there again… hint hint!
Up next is an open air set in Saltwell Park in aid of the Alzheimers Society. A tall order with a non-folk audience, but the band can’t wait to get stuck in!
