Black Duck Folk – Kim Lowings and The Greenwood, support from Road Not Taken

Kim Lowings and the Greenwood

Inspired by the folk tradition, Kim Lowings and The Greenwood perform their songs with a contemporary twist. Their live shows are an energetic blend of original compositions and traditional songs. Kim Lowings, Andrew Lowings, Tim Rogers and Dave Sutherland bring together their multi-instrumental skill and individual experience resulting in an innovative and sensitive approach to arrangements. The motivation is to keep the tradition alive and to share their own tales.

The group began as a collective in 2011 with Kim and her Dad, Andrew, collaborating with Midlands musicians. Since then the Greenwood has become an established four-piece on the British folk scene. Their recorded work includes their debut album This Life (2012), EP Deepest, Darkest Night (2013) and Historia (2015) heralded as “beautiful and enchanting” by Living Tradition and “Absolutely captivating” R2 Magazine ★★★★. Their latest release (2017) ‘Wild and Wicket Youth’ features songs of the sea, soul searching, murder, treachery, triumph, love lost, love gained and a girl’s night out prompted Folk Radio UK to say ‘Lowings has been steadily climbing the folk league table….welcome to the fist division.’

Kim Lowings and The Greenwood have a busy touring schedule with bookings at Folk and Acoustic Clubs, festivals and live music venues across the country. They have been billed alongside folk greats such as Dougie MacLean, Jackie Oates and Martin Simpson. Their reputation is growing and there are whispers along the grapevine that this group are one to watch out for!

We are also very fortunate to have Road Not Taken as support.  Bristol based, these four talented musicians play a mixture of traditional and contemporary songs in their unique melancholic style.
