Kim Lowings & The Greenwood
With a fresh approach to traditional folksong, Kim Lowings and The Greenwood have firmly rooted themselves into the British folk scene. Their sound is “punchy and authentic” (Mike Harding) and cleverly combines original songs with familiar traditional tales, highlighting the continued relevance of tradition today.
Singer-songwriter Kim Lowings heads up the four piece band with a grace and charisma that draws you in, reminiscent of troubadours of old. Greenwood musicians Andrew Lowings, Tim Rogers and Dave Sutherland bring together their creativity and experience earning the reputation of “Stourbridge’s finest music export since the Mitre-fuelled heady days of late 80s indie-rock.” (Three Chords and the Truth UK)
They work with traditional folksong and write their own original material that tell stories inspired by both fables and real life.
Kim is an Appalachian mountain dulcimer player, pianist and songwriter. She sings with an enchantingly pure voice and The Greenwood weave a backline of guitar, bouzouki, double bass and percussion that will get you singing along and your foot tapping.
