Kathryn ‘Mississippi’ Lowdon

Gateshead jazz singer and vocal coach Kathryn Lowdon appeared on BBC Newcastle on Wednesday afternoon to talk about congenital hearing loss and the revelatory effects of a hearing aid. 
Lowdon sang a line or two from Summertime then took up an on-air challenge of teaching presenter John Harle to sing!
The Marley Hill songbird revealed that she has been working on a Mississippi river boat, singing with the New Hope Gospel Choir and preparing for a summer time release of her EP featuring one or two well known faces on the Tyneside jazz scene and some stars of the future from Sage Gateshead’s music education programme. Check-out Ms Lowdon’s  work at www.klvs.co.uk
